Failed Upgrade from 4.0.18 to 5.0.14
« on: August 13, 2019, 01:09:34 pm »
Hello everyone,

I have a problem with my installation. As the title said, I wanted to update via the dashboard from 4.0.18 to 5.0.14.
Personally, I would not like to build on the existing, but install a fresh version and transfer the existing data.
The server is in PDC, so I would like to migrate the data from one server to the second (new).
Does anyone know how to do that?
If something is missing, I am happy to submit.

Modules that are installed:
DHCP, DNS Server, VPN, Firewall, Domain Controllers and File Sharing, Traffic Shaping, HTTP Proxy, Antivirus

Thanks in advanced!

Actually, if I have understood your message, you have mostly the problem of importing the shared resources, isn't it?
(Most of the modules that you use aren't hard to configure by hand)
In this case the better IMHO is to export domain user accounts and groups from the old Zentyal. Afterwards you'll have to create the shared resources in your new Zentyal server through webadmin and to re-create the users and groups acls for these shares.
Afterwards you can copy the content of the old shares into the new ones using the tar command with the "--acls -cpf" options in order to preserve the acls and unix permissions.
By this way webadmin will be able to manage the shared resources without issues.
I hope this will help you.
PS: You can import/export user accounts by scripting with samba-tool options too.
