upgrading from 3.0.1_GA_160 to latest on FC4

Postby Mike Carifio » Mon Feb 19, 2007 5:24 pm

Any gottas I should be aware of before I start?
I've looked at http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Open_Source_Edition_Backup_Procedure

for backing up my existing installation. I've installed in /opt/zimbra.

Will recursive copy of the directory to (say) /opt/zimbra_3.0.1_GA_160

also copy the database stuff?
Pl. advise. Thanks.

To see if the installation has a dns issue, I did a new install on another machine.

This went without a hitch. So there's something wrong on the server machine itself.

The obvious question is: is the FQDN of your Zimbra server actually postmaster.usys.com? It seems to not exists as far as DNS is concerned:
[QUOTE]Creating server entry for postmaster.usys.com...

*** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov -l cs postmaster.usys.com
ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: createServer) (cause: javax.naming.NamingException [LDAP: error code 80 - internal error])

Done[/QUOTE]You need to check you /etc/hosts file for correct entries, you also need to fix the DNS entries. Search the forums for 'DNS in a Nutshell' and follow the instructions there (it's also in the wiki). If you're behind a NAT device then you probably need a split-DNS setup to resolve the server IP correctly - details also in the wiki for that.
This check[/URL] on your DNS shows no server by the name postmaster.usys.com.

I run a local dns server that forwards to my ISP for local names it can't

resolve. This is what you mean by a "split server"?
Since I have an operational zimbra 4.5.1 on a different box (I pointed

the mx record there and installed), can I tar up /opt/zimbra/db, carry it

to the new box and untar it in place? The 3.0 to 4.5.1 upgrade appears

to have correctly updated all my mailboxes (well, no errors), so swapping one for the

other should be ok? So I would stop zimbra (/sbin/service zimbra stop),

tar up the old /opt/zimbra/db (tar zcf /tmp/zimbra-db.tgz /opt/zimbra/db)

rename the old db directory (mv /opt/zimbra/db /opt/zimbra/db.old), untar

the updated stuff into /opt/zimbra/db and restart the server. Or is there

a preferred (better) way to do this?

Split DNS is detailed in the wiki here. You should also disable ipv6 on the Zimbra server.
You posted the install logs earlier, they show this error:
[QUOTE]Creating server entry for postmaster.usys.com...

*** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov -l cs postmaster.usys.com
ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: createServer) (cause: javax.naming.NamingException [LDAP: error code 80 - internal error])

Done
[/QUOTE]Specifically this line: [QUOTE]ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: unable to lookup server by name: [/QUOTE] that seems self-explanatory to me. Your DNS isn't set-up correctly. It can't be found, you need A & MX records pointing to this server - the install routine doesn't seem to think one or other of them exists.

The command line dig queries show all is well (doesn't it)?
I set up a "split DNS" locally according to the instructions on the wiki.

I reinstalled 4.5.1, I get the same result.
Here's what dig says:

No, the dig command doesn't show all is well. You're doing a dig on the FQDN of your server, it should be on the domain name only i.e. dig usys.com any - does that show your postmaster.usys.com as the mail server with all the correct records?

Dig and usys.com are in sync now. Reinstalled 4.5.1, got the same

name resolution errors. I think I'm at the stage where I want to do

a clean install, but I don't want to lose my existing mailboxes. Is

there a way to set the mailboxes and mail aside, install (not upgrade),

and then restore the mailboxes? Pl. advise.
Thanks for your help.
