Hi @benusa ,

There is no init on Debian 9 anymore. Instead you should use the systemd units

@fbartels what is the best linux base for kopano
and is this Supported

Hi @benusa ,

You can find the list of supported distributions at
https://documentation.kopano.io/support_lifecycle_policy/linux_support_lifecycle.html#support-definitions-of-distributions. Generally speaking of you have a subscription and download from download.kopano.io/supported, then it’s supported.

Personally I would always go with something Debian based, but the is my personal preference. If you want easy setup and maintenance the Univention may be something for you.

@benusa

Hi ben,

for me it is univention ucs as it is free in the core edition without restrictions, and debian based.
It has a powerful web gui for administration and with master backup support for ldap and samba it is also safe/redundant on ldap
and you can manage kopano from ucs web gui (most user settings and mail domains)

Hi externa
question
i make a backup with mysqldump from kopano UCS server, the DB ist 1,3MB
my old zarafa DB with same date have 100MB.
its a problem with dump?

hi,
pretty sure it’s a problem.
Which command did you use?
mysqldump kopano --skip-lock-tables --single-transaction -ukopano -pXXXXXX >kopanoDB.sql
best regards

@anotherandy thx. I have test with your parameter --> is the same result

Hi,

only a thougt from me.
But Zarafa in earlier versions stored the attachements in SQL DB and now in kopano they are stored in file system - can this be the cause of your different size in DB Dump ?
what was your zarafa config ? and how did you migrate the data to new server ?

  • i have install a new UCS Server Standrad with all kopano Apps
  • then i copy my data with z-push from Outlook to new Kopano
  • all data ok and SYNC with smartphone ok.
  • then i must a SQLDUMP with your parameters

So

  • i install a new Version from UCS Server on a notebook a testsystem.
  • then i make a mysql restore with the data from orginal kopano
    the testsystem has no data.
    the database ist very smal befor i restore

i dont no
i have test with manual mysqldump and parameters
and with “automysqlbackup” tool fpr linux

thx ben

How did you do that ?

  • you can not import mails through z-push as activesync does not provide this - you’ll have to export to pst instead and import though kopano server console kopano-migration-pst tool

E-mail was not important in this case.
get the over kopano per imap from external system.
There they are still.
I am primarily concerned with calendars and contacts

@benusa

as i said in my previous port - dump to pst from outlook on old server - copy the pst to new server and run kopano-migrate-pst to import to new server and user - this implies mail, contacts and calendar items

Thank you
In principle, I have achieved my goal, the system is running excellent.
BUT
I wanted to test one if I fail the productive system, I set up the new system and want to import the SQL DB.
I also do a snapshot of the server all ok.
The goal is to create a SQL DB backup, which I can use again at any time.

You are thinking way to complex. Just use kopano-backup to backup and restore your system. No need to go through ActiveSync and a PST export.

Hi ben,
if you still want to try it with debian 9 that would be your solution,

systemctl list-units | grep kopano
systemctl enable kopano-dagent
systemctl enable kopano-server

@sinux

you can add:
systemctl enable kopano-spooler
(en if necessarry for your setup ‘systemctl enable kopano-gateway’)

to that list. Took me hours of troubleshooting to find out the kopano-spooler should be running but wasn’t. :-/
