    Default Installing Zimbra Updates

    This sounds really simple and stupid, but to my utter and total amazement, there is ***NOTHING*** regarding this subject in the documentation or via countless hours of Google searching.

    Software updates?

    I mean, I know Zimbra *checks* for updates, but what about actually installing the updated versions?

    Example, I am running zcs-6.0.8, while zcs-6.0.9 is now available. Of coarse, I know I am getting notifications about this. And the documentation explains the *checking* of updates, there is literally nothing regarding INSTALLATION of these updates.

    I downloaded the latest 6.0.9 this morning, but what do I do? Is there an argument to install.sh? Or is there an undocumented (or un-indexed) zmcontrol command that does this for me?

    In the Linux world, we have this concept of package management: "apt-get dist-upgrade" and "yum upgrade". Just a hint to the Zimbra Devs ;-)...

    Thanks!

    This has been covered in the forums and the Release Notes, you backup your version of Zimbra then read the release notes while you're downloading the new version and when it's downloaded you run the extract and then the ./install.shh script.

    Make sure that you download the correct package for the distro and arch, and take a full backup before proceeding

    Is there a smaller patch download for the update or do we also download the full installation just like a new installation?

    Read the two posts above yours and ZCS is never available for update via a patch.
