Migration ubuntu Server 14.04->16.04 on a Zimbra 8.8.10

Postby Gefclic » Fri Oct 12, 2018 2:05 pm

Hello every body, and thanks for every one who are read me.

I'm french, so i make many mistake in English, but i try to do my best ;)

I work for a school and we are using Zimbra for the mail student. I've upgrade my Ubuntu Server (14.04->16.04) and download the 16.04 installation of Zimbra. But since i have upgrade Ubuntu, Zimbra can't bind the Zimbra LDAP.

Thank's for your help

When i try to run install.sh :
root@zimbra:/home/ituser/zcs-8.8.10_GA_3039.UBUNTU16_64.20180928094617# ./install.sh

I'd recommend doing a clean install of 16.04 instead of doing the upgrade. If you partition the server correctly, ie put /opt on a separate partition, then it's very easy to do and you don't need to restore the /opt/zimbra directory(although you should always have a current backup).
