    Default Release Notes for 6.0.1

    I have noticed that in the Release Notes for Zimbra 6.0.1 there is an Important Notice for RHEL 5 users that I have a question about. Here is the notice

    "Important: When performing an upgrade on servers running 32 bit RHEL 5,
    update 2 or earlier or FC 5, the installer may encounter a segmentation fault.
    No work around currently is available. Make sure you backup all configuration
    files before you start the upgrade! (Bug 21801)"

    Does this mean that if I have RHEL 5 v.2 that I should probably not proceed to upgrade from 5.0.19 to 6.0.1? I have tested out some of the cool new stuff 6.0.1 has to offer and really would like to upgrade but I am not prepared for an emergency visit this weekend to my workplace to fix and major issue.

    If RHEL v.2 does not work with upgrading to Zimbra 6.0.1 when will this issue be resolved? We own a lifetime license and the only real way to upgrade would be to wait until summer. I work at a school. I don't think anyone wants to wait for summer though with all the cool new features.

    Thanks for any help in your advice.

    No, it means you should take a backup of your /opt/zimbra directory structure prior to performing the upgrade.

    If you read the bug report you'll see that this is a random problem that we've not been able to find the cause. You may, or may not, hit this problem hence the note about a backup before the upgrade.

    My suggestion would be to take a backup of your /opt/zimbra directory then upgrade your CentOS to 5.3 and when you've confirmed that you upgrade is OK and Zimbra start and runs OK you should take another backup and upgrade to 6.0.1. Make sure you stop mail from getting in to your system during the upgrades and you keep the backup on a separate machine from the Zimbra server.

    And when you do perform the ZCS upgrade ensure that all zimbra processes have indeed been stopped first.

    Dumb question

    Could I just make sure that my NE backup is off of the server? Would that be good enough?
