    Default Ahh! Restored from backup and now zmcontrol asks for a password

    I tried 4.0.2 -> 4.5.2 and that failed, so I rsync'd my backup back to the production machine and now I get:

    Code:
    sent 2735617319 bytes  received 909372 bytes  896487.04 bytes/sec
    total size is 9871857727  speedup is 3.61
    [root@stud zimbra_backup]# su - zimbra
    [zimbra@stud ~]$ zmcontrol start
    Host stud.orlandini.us
            Starting ldap...Password:
    I tried up "zmldappasswd --root passwd" as both zimbra user and root and neither of them fixed this.

    I'm completely down! Help

    Looks like a permissions issue.
    Run the installer from the version that you installed, and run it as an upgrade. That *should* fix it. . .
    Make sure you have your backup

    Default fixed

    I tried to do the upgrade install, but it complained that it didn't find any of the packages. So, I moved /opt/zimbra to /opt/old_zimbra. Then I installed 4.0.2 from scratch. Shut it down and moved /opt/zimbra to /opt/new_zimbra and moved /opt/old_zimbra to /opt/zimbra. Then I did a restart and I'm back up.

    Whew!

    Now the question is, why does my 4.0.2 upgrade to 4.5.2 fail.
