    Default dist-upgrad ->lenny

    Hi guys,

    i just updated my etch to lenny. however probably not my best idea ever :P
    zimbra ist not starting anymore and i guess lenny ist not supported and taht is the reason why.

    Any advice how to fix that problem. if needed i can reinstall the system but need to know how to backup / restore zimbra installation including my 30 mail boxes.

    thank you.

    Hi,

    do I understand your posts the right way?

    You had have debian etch with Zimbra 5 running and took this to a centos 5 machine? - That sounds great!!!

    Can you please write the steps down you did this?

    I think i will do it this way:

    - Backup, for sure
    - Install a clear Centos 5.4 and install Zimbra 6.0.3 (my Etch is 6.0.3, too)
    - Install with -s and remove the /opt/zimbra folder
    - rsync /opt/zimbra from my running system to the new
    - install without -s
    - reboot ---> Having fun!

    could it work this way?

    hi Centro,

    sounds good:

    - Install with -s and rename the /opt/zimbra folder
    - rsync
    - install/upgrade your zimbra install
    - setup your config including sendmail link if your using for ex.: web scripts
    thats it!

    good luck!
