Kopano Install on Univention UCS 4.3

I had working installations of kopano core and web app running on UCS 4.3-0 joined to an AD domain until I installed a UCS update. After the server rebooted the web app was unable to connect to core and I was unable to reinstall kopano because it would error out while trying to connect to the database. Since then i already restored the VM to a previous checkpoint and installed everything from scratch, by deleting the domain controller master entry in the AD DNS Console and also the 2 DNS Host records (one with host name of the UCS and other with name ucs-sso) about 8 times and every single time i get this error https://pasteboard.co/Hdehuq1.png

Here’s the output of appcenter.log

It seems that the problem lies in the kopano-common binary package.

When i run apt --fix-broken install as instructed i get the following:

Is there an issue with the repository or am I missing something?

@zirpco said in Kopano Install on Univention UCS 4.3:

Is there an issue with the repository or am I missing something?

I don’t have a testsystem that is part of an active directory, but in my test environment I can install the core app just fine.

Tried a couple times again with same results, so i gave up.
I’m trying another groupware called SOGo.

Nachdem der Releasemanager und der Support keine Lösung hat, hier meine Lösung

Alle Kopano Repositories deaktivieren

univention-config-registry set
kopano/repo/kopano-core=‘false’
kopano/repo/kopano-webapp=‘false’
kopano/repo/kopano-files=‘false’
kopano/repo/kopano-mdm=‘false’
kopano/repo/kopano-smime=‘false’
kopano/repo/kopano-webmeetings=‘false’
kopano/repo/z-push-kopano='false’
Kopano Core über Appcenter aktualisieren damit Upgrade auf 4.3.1 aktiv wird

Release Upgrade durchführen
Paket Upgrades durchführen
Nochmal Kopano Core über Appcenter aktualisieren, danach ging es schon mal
Wenn nicht, folgende Reihenfolge

Entfernen in folgender Reihenfolge
Z-Push
Webmeetings
Webapp
Core

und danach in rückwärtiger Reihenfolge installieren

Hat bei mir jetzt viermal geklappt, also kein Scherz. Probierts aus!

@cpzengel this is an english speaking forum. please only post english topics and replies.

if you are the release manager i´d better translate that than criticizing my german post!

I personally don’t think the way with removing and reinstalling is a good approach, but whatever floats your boat…

Instructions for the upgrade of the Kopano apps from UCS 4.2 to 4.3 can be found at https://wiki.z-hub.io/display/K4U/Updating+Kopano+packages+directly+from+the+Kopano+download+server#UpdatingKopanopackagesdirectlyfromtheKopanodownloadserver-WorkaroundupdatingfromUCS4.2to4.3withrepositories

This is a workaround and as you experienced this workaround may not always work. Anyways I would advise to wait with the upgrade until a newer 8.6 has been released. I have added this hint to the description.
