    Default Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS released

    Hi all,

    Did anyone try to install ZCS 7.2 on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS ?

    Shall we wait for a new ZCS release that supports it ?

    Or succesful installation and start mean that everything must work fine?


    The main reason to upgrade:
    Ubuntu Server 10.04 does not support SSD drives but 12.04 does.

    thanks

    Wait for a ZCS release that supports it, if you install ZCS on that operating system you will be on your own.

    I run 10.04 on machines with SSD drives (among others). What in particular are you lacking?

    Zimbra is a tightly integrated bundle of many packages and apps. It may not work well (or certainly reliably) on an unsupported OS. I think you'll find 12.04 will be supported when the next major release comes around. I very much doubt you will see zimbra "port" the current release to 12.04.

    Given 7.2 has only just been released, I suspect you are in for a wait.

    My 10.04 Zimbra VM is running a 3.1 kernel (just because it's a standard kernel I use across all my VM's regardless of version or distribution).

    Install 10.04, compile up a recent kernel for it and call it done.

    I would recommend looking into their release history in relation to OS releases and when Zimbra releases support the newly released OS to get an educated guess to when the "might" release a 12.04 version. You also have to factor in the time it takes between Zimbra releases...as it was already pointed out, 7.2 was just released and it may be a while before the next release (don't know if that one will contain 12.04 support though).

    It has already been said that Zimbra will not post anything about when you can expect a new OS release will be supported. Reference Post

    Type su - zimbra -c "zmcontrol -v" to get your version and copy that into your profile (more info here)

    I updated to 12.04 and it went fine for most people updating from @ least 10.04. here is how we did it: Ubuntu as a Server - 12.04 LTS - Precise Pangolin Released Today! (Plus how to upgrade!) - Ubuntu Server Help

    edit: for awful grammar

    Whether you can upgrade Ubuntu to 12.04 from a previous version is irrelevant, Ubuntu 12.04 is still an unsupported platform for Zimbra Collaboration Server - any problems you have with it or bugs that you find will not be considered in those circumstances until ZCS is officially built for that platform.

    TRIM support

    I do not use VM.
    Could you give me a link about how do I update kernel.

    And are you sure that Zimbra will work on a new kernel? Or kernel does not matter?

    The kernel version is unimportant.

    That you had to ask means I'm probably going to regret this, however this should point you in the right direction.

    Install Kernel 3.2-precise in Ubuntu 11.10, 11.04, 10.10 and 10.4 | HowOpenSource

    Remember if it breaks, you get to keep both pieces.

    Everything I've read about TRIM support suggests that it's not actually a great idea to use the filesystem support for it, but better to run batched TRIM runs on a regular basis.

    Something like a cron job running fstrim would be suitable and would work without you needing to upgrade the kernel.

    Thanks for your help.

    I think I will install Zimbra on RAID1 and will migrate to SSDs when they are supported properly.
