SINGLE SERVER UPGRADE.

  • Upgarde service automatically stops and starts the servce.
  • Use the (nohup) command while running the upgarde, so that it is immune to hangups.
  • You have to do the backup first before you do an upgrade.

-- For multi server upgarde

  • Stop all the server in the zcs environment.
  • zmcontrol stop
  • Upgarde process -- LDAP serer, Mail, Store Serer and then the MTA Server.

-- For MAC machines:

/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl is the ZCS configuration upgrade.

To check the status of the server run the command zmcontrol status Or to start the service type zmcontrol start

To see the password on a serve, type zmlocalconfig -s
