Zimbra Appliance

srandall's picture



Have downloaded the latest version of the Zimbra Appliance and put it live, the documentation says that it is built on the latest Turnkeycore which contains Ubuntu 10.0.4 LTS ,  however it seems to be built on Ubuntu 8.   The version I have downloaded is 2009.10-2.  Is there a newer version or is the link on the appliance information page linking to the wrong descroption of core? http://www.turnkeylinux.org/core

Any help or advice greatly recevied?

Zimbra has not been updated

Unfortunatly the latest TKL Zimbra appliance is v2009.x (based on Ubuntu 8.04).

There is a bit of an issue with upgrading Zimbra as it no longer supports 32 bit Ubuntu and currently TKL is 32 bit only. That leaves the devs in a quandry... should they hack it and release a product that is not supported upstream and may possibly be unstable and cause problems (and will need to be hacked again probably each time it needs an upgrade)... Or do they leave it and release it once TKL release 64 bit appliances? Due to the lack of an updated appliance I'm inclined to think that they are holding off for when they can release 64 bit appliances. But I know they have a huge amount on at the moment so who knows?

TKLBAM should be able to do it

Although the devil is always in the details. Depending on how much things change(/have changed) between the versions of Zimbra it may be as simple as running TKLBAM. Or it may be more involved, requiring some degree on manual tuning/config/etc.
