Manual ZCP to Kopano migration

  • Hi
    I am testing manual migration.
    In the documentation
    3.3.2. Removal of ZCP packages there is a command for Debian to remove ZCP packages :

    " dpkg -l | egrep ‘(mapi|gsoap|ical|vmime|zarafa)’ | awk ‘{ print $2 }’ | xargs apt-get remove "

    I tried this but the command was not successful . I saw the package list at the screen.

    It seems to me that the egrep command with the pattern “ical” selects some wrong packages ( not ZARAFA) from the
    list generated by the dpkg -l command … ( ical is in the package description part)
    Is the command ok ? Am I doing something wrong?

    regards bskoeln

  • Kopano

    @bskoeln yes, I think you’re right. I must say I never tried the manual personally but looking at the query I personally would expect it to look like the following:

    dpkg -l | egrep ‘(mapi|gsoap|libical|vmime|zarafa)’ | awk ‘{ print $2 }’ | xargs apt-get remove

  • Hello bskoeln,

    I recommend a clean installation! Save you problems later.


  • Hallo
    I think Sinux is right. I continued testing the manual migration -with the “new” command- removing zarafa packages and then installing the new Kopano packages.
    After connecting the server to the existing zarafa database the server starts. But the first

    kopano-admin -l

    shows this errror

    Unable to load : /usr/lib/kopano/ kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen : Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden     Unable to open Admin session : not found 

    And a connection to the server via webapp shows a

    " Unknown MAPI Error: MAPI_E_NOT_FOUND" in the login screen.


  • You may need this???

    The best Way is a backup from DB, /etc & /data Folder and a fresh Installation.
    Recover from /etc/postfix, fetchmail, ssl (Zertifikate) to new System.
    Don’t forget the User Rights!!!
    User to reinitialize with kopano-admin, search …
    My Migration from Yaffas to Kopano (User on DB) was not simple ;)

  • hi bskoeln

    i had the same issue after migrating from zarafa 7.2.1 to kopano. the solution in my case was to remove file /etc/mapi/zarafa.inf.

    so based on this documentation:

    1. remove zarafa packages:
    dpkg -l | egrep '(mapi|gsoap|libical|vmime|zarafa)' | awk '{ print $2 }' | xargs apt-get remove
    1. remove additional zarafa packages:
    apt-get remove packages installed with zarafa: apt-get remove -y -q python-itsdangerous-doc python-itsdangerous python3-itsdangerous libzcp-common-util0 libzcp-common-ssl0 libzcp-common-service0 libunwind8-dev libunwind8-dbg libunwind8
    1. remove zarafa.inf file:
    rm /etc/mapi/zarafa.inf
    1. proceed with installation of kopano packages.

    hope this helps someone.
