    Smile Upgrade 3.1.4 GA -> 4.5.2 Network Edition on unsupported SLES 10 x86

    I just finished a upgrading my 3.1.4 to 4.5.2 on my SLES 10 box. Here are the steps I used and some problems I had.

    1. Backup
    2. Pray
    3. Backup again just in case praying did not work
    4. Copy licence key
    5. Download and untar
    6. Run install script.
    7. 30 minutes later everything went fine.

    I do have some problems but they are the same as when I had 3.1.4
    1. Logger does not work
    2. Spell check does not work

    I originally did not install them but during the upgrade it asked if I want to so I did to test it out. Unfortunaley it did not fix my problems.

    The only other problem I am having is the new document system does not work. I wonder if you have a 150 user license and you have 149 users before the upgrade if the two spam accounts take a seat and make the document install fail.

    Best part about the new version is the detach button. Worst thing is detach is not in the right click menu or the default action if you double click a email.



    If anyone has some help about logger, spellcheck, documents on SUSE please advice.

    Update
    Backup does not work from CLI or Admin
    from cli Error occurred: java.security.cert.CertificateException: Untrusted Server Certificate Chain
    from admin says i am over my licensing, i guess it does count the spam accounts.

    What, if I may ask, is the point of using an unsupported operating system. You'll get no support from Zimbra for that configuration, is it worth it?

    1. Before I did the SLES install Zimbra told me it would be supporting it in the near future. This has not held true but that is expected from software vendors.

    2. It is the only OS we support internally.

    3. Great thing about Linux is you can make just about anything run if you try hard enough.

    4. I never make a purchase and expect to rely on the vendors support for anything.

    5. I have 7 other SLES 10 servers and did not want one 9.0 freak.

    6. Who needs spell check

    7. Server has 173 days uptime and has been working fine.

    8. I tested it before I purchased it.

    9. Did not want to purchase Scalix.

    Depends what you call 'near term', they will be supporting it.

    Interesting, thanks for the explanation. As long as you're capable of supporting it then nobody will mind.

    I call near term under 6 months, software vendors call near term the day before the os vendor drops support.

    This thread talks about openSUSE 10.2 (different than your SLES10 install) but I think that the logger issues may have similar fixes (meaning that syslog is not starting before Zimbra).

    Anyway, you may want to poke around and see if they are related at all.

    Thanks,

    To fix logger all I needed was to add this to my etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf


    filter f_local0 { facility(local0); }; # zimbra
    destination zmail { file("/var/log/zimbra.log" owner("zimbra") ); }; # zimbra
    log { source(src); filter(f_mail); destination(zmail); }; # zimbra
    destination local0 { file("/var/log/zimbra.log" owner("zimbra") ); }; # zimbra
    log { source(src); filter(f_local0); destination(local0); }; # zimbra
    filter f_auth { facility(auth); }; # zimbra
    destination zmauth { file("/var/log/zimbra.log" owner("zimbra") ); }; # zimbra
    log { source(src); filter(f_auth); destination(zmauth); }; # zimbra

    Adding link fixed spell check

    ln -s /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.0 /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/lib/libexpat.so.0
