How do I remove the talk/chat system from Zimbra?

Postby rotorboy » Wed Jul 04, 2018 7:10 pm

Greetings,

We're not using and have no plans to use the Zimbra Talk system - is there an easy way to remove it from Zimbra without affecting anything negatively? I've searched the forums but I'm not finding any clear info.

Thanks.

How about removing the chat zimlet:

Code: Select all

You can also choose not to install it when you next upgrade.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.

In the admin screen I can see Zimbra Talk is running. I assume this means it is using server resources (RAM, CPU, Disk, etc.)
Since no one uses it do I just click "Stop" and turn of the auto-start module and save some system resources for other things or do I have to do some process to uninstall it from the server?

I'm also not sure why it says admin and mobile are stopped... So many Zimbra bugs these days.

Sorry, I though you were asking if the service could be removed from a users view and you mentioned Talk/Chat and AFAIK Talk is an NE feature and Chat is an OSS so I'm surprised you're mentioning both features in the same title. version feature. If you want to disable the chat feature complete you can do the following:

Check it's current status:

Code: Select all

zmprov gs $(zmhostname) | grep -i chat
zimbraChatAllowUnencryptedPassword: FALSE
zimbraChatServiceEnabled: TRUE
zimbraChatXmppPort: 5222
zimbraChatXmppSslPort: 5223
zimbraChatXmppSslPortEnabled: FALSE


Disable it and check it's status:

Code: Select all

zmprov ms $(zmhostname) zimbraChatServiceEnabled FALSE
zmprov gs $(zmhostname) | grep -i chat


That's it as far as I know. I
