    Hello Jorge,

    Using the RHEL7_64 version of the Open Source variant, the installation step for the Common Zimlets consistently fails when upgrading 8.7.5 to 8.7.7 (or 8.7.6). Errors are all of the following type:

    etc, etc…

    I’m trying to figure out what might be causing this. Do you have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    – Richard.

    Interesting…

    Before restoring my backup I decided to run some experiments. One of them was to manually run the zmzimletctl -l deploy command shown in the log, which nicely reproduced the same error. No surprise there.

    What did surprise me is that running this command from ZCS 8.7.7 using the com_zimbra_*.zip file from ZCS 8.7.5 (which had worked fine before) yields the identical error, complaining about the same file inside of the zip file being deployed. This seems to indicate the problem isn’t with the zip file itself but the code running the deploy command.

    Time to crack open the source code ;-)

    – Richard.

      Hi Richard,
      I will try to reproduce this error, but until Wednesday it will not be possible to me.

      Try it on your end if possible and let us know.

      Thanks

    Hello Jorge,

    I wanted to give you a quick update to let you know that it appears the error originates from changes made to the class com.zimbra.cs.zimlet.ZimletUtil. I’m looking to compare the source code change between 8.7.5 and 8.7.[67] next.

    Have a good weekend!

    – Richard.

    Hello again,

    I think I found the problem, and it explains why not a lot of other people are reporting this.

    In ZCS 8.7.6 code was added to check for absolute paths in Zimlets. One of those checks as it exists in 8.7.7 has:

    file = new File(zimlet, fname);
    if(!file.getCanonicalPath().startsWith(LC.zimlet_directory.value())) {
    ZimbraLog.zimlet.error(String.format(“Zimlet %s has an invalid file path %s”, zimletName, fname));
    throw ZimletException.CANNOT_DEPLOY(zimletName, “Invalid file path ” + fname, null);
    }

    On my system, /opt is a symbolic link to subdirectory another volume for storage purposes. This has never been a problem for all the Zimbra releases I’ve ran so far, starting back at 4.5.0 :-)

    Unfortunately the line:

    if(!file.getCanonicalPath().startsWith(LC.zimlet_directory.value())) {

    cannot deal with this concept, as it compares the location of the file (which resolves to the name on the actual volume) against the desired zimlet directory based on the ‘/opt/zimbra’ path. The two don’t match, and an exception is thrown.

    Very easily solved by using getCanonicalPath() on the zimlet_directory value as well. Something like:

    String zimletDirPath = new File(LC.zimlet_directory.value()).getCanonicalPath();
    if(!file.getCanonicalPath().startsWith(zimletDirPath))

    (For optimization purposes you’d define zimletDirPath just prior to the for() loop that iterates through the ZimleFile entries.)

    Should I submit a ticket for this or would you like to?

    All the best,

    – Richard.

      Hi Richard
      yes I suggest you to open a ticket.. so everyone can benefit from the fix!

    Wonderful news. I will update 8.7.7…

    Greetings,

    The bug was submitted as:

    Bug 107908 – Installation of / upgrade to ZCS 8.7.6 or 8.7.7 fails with Zimlet errors if /opt/zimbra contains symlink

    https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=107908

    Cheers,

    Hello,

    Can someone confirm, if I can host my IDN domains and Zimbra will support EAI mailbox.

    Thanks.

    • Zimbra Support May 9, 2017 at 12:45 PM #

      No Currently you can not host IDN domains and we currently dont support EAI mailbox.

    • Support May 9, 2017 at 12:45 PM #

      Hello

      No currently there is no provision for IDN domains or EAI mailbox. Zimbra do not support Email Address Internationalization (EAI) since EAI is the protocol that allows email addresses with IDNs in the domain part and/or Unicode (non-ASCII) characters in the Mailbox name to function within the traditional email environment and Zimbra Email software and services need to make specific changes to support EAI which is currently not in road-map. currently Zimbra systems do not recognize non-ASCII format (Internationalized Domain Names, or IDNs)

    Tengo Zimbra 8.7.1 Open Source. Cuál es el procedimiento para actualizar a 8.7.7? Gracias! Saludos.

    So what happened to the “Every 2 weeks” maintenance releases?
