Alias for Distrubution List Status: Unknown Error

Alright, new Zimbra install, 8.8.5.

When migrating to the server I took the old data from Google, made a spreadsheet with all the data, inserted the proper options to create everything command line..

Code: Select all

zmprov < distro-aliases.txt

and similar for all the initial provisioning.

As far as I can tell, everything worked except aliases for distribution lists.

They created without errors (tested running a couple lines manually from the txt files before doing all of them), but they don't work.

In the GUI,

Hovering over one with the mouse shows the info box shows Status: Known error

Using the GUI, I delete the aliases for a distribution list, save, then add them back, save again. The Distribution Lists list still shows the Unknown Error. If I go back to the distribution list aliases and try and delete the alias again, when I push Save this time it shows Invalid Request. Clicking Details:

Invalid request
Message: invalid request: zimbraIsACLGroup is immutable Error code: service.INVALID_REQUEST Method: [unknown] Details:soap:Sender

What am I missing?

Two other questions.. What do I need to do to enable using Tab to go between fields when entering Aliases? And what do I need to change to enable highlighting text in the Zimbra GUI? I can not highlight the name of the distribution list I am currently working on, when editing a distribution list, but this happens in a lot of places.

As a work-around, I literally created a Distribution List for each alias, and then added each member to the new distribution list..

Appears to be working so far, but took me a few hours to setup.

Any ideas where I should look for the cause?
