    Default Any SuSE Enterprise Server 9 NE 4.5 Upgrade Successes?

    Hi,

    Usually we've updated Zimbra pretty quickly when a new version is released, but with 4.5 some of the forum posts have spooked us, probably unnecessarily, but...

    Since the nature of forum posts is somewhat self-selecting (bad news and problems mostly), I thought it might be a good time to ask if anyone has yet done a successful upgrade of their Network Edition on SuSE Enterprise Server 9 to version 4.5, and if so would they mind posting so by replying to this thread, please.

    Any takers?

    All the best,
    Mark

    If you're on Redhat, (I'm on FC5) I think there remains an issue.

    For the record, I have 87% free space and still can't upgrade.

    We have a customer that did a 4.03 -> 4.5GA (SLES9) update yesterday without incident.

    We have done a bunch of RHEL4 updates all without incident.

    Default Status of upgrade on SLES9?

    Hi all,

    Browsing the forums, it is not clear to me what success people has had when upgrading on a SLES9, (with enough diskspace) OpenSource edition.

    So, could anyone confirm/comment on that 4.0.4GA to 4.5GA should work?

    Regards
    Daniel

    Yes, it should work. As always, it goes with the advice to make a backup in case you need to restore.
