Data migration ZCS NE 7.2 to 8.0 fails

Postby Gobelin » Thu Sep 13, 2012 4:30 pm

Hi all,
I'm trying a test for a migration my data from 7.2 to 8, with not much luck so far. I'm running the test using zmrestoreoffline, so in any way it's a fingers crossed:
- Here is the release info of my current production system:
zimbra@merlin:~$ zmcontrol -v

Release 7.2.0_GA_2669.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 NETWORK edition.

zimbra@merlin:~$
- Here is the newly installed ZCS NE 8 version:
zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $ zmcontrol -v

Release 8.0.0.GA.5434.UBUNTU10.64 UBUNTU10_64 NETWORK edition.

zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $
- This is the most recent backup of the production system (transferred to the new machine):
zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $ zmrestoreldap -lbs

full-20120913.202351.436

zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $
- Restore procedure and error log (mailboxd warning may be ignored afaik):
zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $ zmrestoreoffline -sys -a all -c -br

mailboxd is not running.

zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $
zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $ tail -f /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log

^C

zimbra@merlin-new ~/backup/sessions $
Any Suggestion?
Doesn't seem to be possible to define a db version number using /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmyinit.

I can try to upgrade the DB (on a duplicated system), but I have no idea how.
Furthermore the ZCS 8 version doesn't seem to show any hick ups, all working and reporting fine. As far as I can see, correctly installed/configured.
Thx!

The offline DR method you are attempting is only intended to be used against the same versions of ZCS. If the goal is to simply get your system to 8.0 you should follow the standard upgrade guide. Most of the other guides for moving from one server to another also except the ZCS version to be the same on both systems.
