    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra to Zimbra Migration

    Good Morning,

    I am moving my zimbra to new hardware and doing a server side-by-side installation. When I am done the migration. I will upgrade my version.

    These are the steps that I have completed:


    1. Backed up Zimbra /opt/zimbra on old server
    2. Installed the exact same version on new server
    3. Once installed, I moved my backup to the new server, and replace the /opt/zimbra directory with the one from my backup.
    4. ran the /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms command
    5. Attempted to start zimbra, and receive the following error:


    /opt/zimbra/cyrus-sasl-2.1.21.ZIMBRA/sbin/saslauthd: error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    zmsaslauthdctl failed to start

    Any help/direction would be most appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Brent.

    Hi Brent,

    Does the new server run the same operating system as the old one? Also, what version of zimbra are you working on?

    That said, the error seems to imply that libcurl is not installed, but the Zimbra installer checks for this and wont proceed if it cant find it, which makes this a little odd.

    Didn't I read a post that zmfixperms is not doing it right. I think you have to chmod zimbra.zimbra for the entire /opt/zimbra directory and then zmfixperms. Just a thought.

    That was always the recommendation:

    Hey Dirk,

    Thank you for your quick reply. It is running the same version yes. The only difference between the OS's would be that the hardware is different. Now on a dell poweredge 2950 and previously was on a dell poweredge 750.

    Zimbra Version is 4.5.4.

    Thanks Mike,

    I did it in that order, still no luck.

    This is a restore based explicitly on the wiki URL above. It must be related to the IP address or MX records. Perhaps the server IP being changed in this process would cause this? But it doesn't state that but rather a libcurl issue?

    I hate to state the obvious, but you have checked that libcurl is indeed installed? It may be necessary to install the development libraries also, although on my server they are not installed.

    Other than that, I'm grasping at straw's.

    I tired that, is there a way I can get the RPM out of zimbra install directory, and install it with nodeps again just to be sure?

    Default Problem Solved

    I solved the problem mentioned above with two steps:

    Changed server IP address to MX record from Backup
    Copied slapd configurations from dummy copy of installation, and then ran installer again, selected update....

    Cheers,

    Brent.
