Patch Installation

For 8.8.8 Patches, you don’t need to download any patch builds. 8.8.8 Patch packages can be installed using Linux package management commands.
Please refer to the release notes for 8.8.8 Patch 6 installation on Redhat and Ubuntu platforms.

8.8.8 Patch Change:
**This note is applicable only if you are upgrading from 8.8.8 GA or 8.8.8 Patch 1 to latest patch. Ignore if you are upgrading from 8.8.8 Patch 2 or higher.

8.8.8 Patch (zimbra-patch) checks if your system is Network Edition, and if so, it adds a new Network Edition-only package repository. As a result, after the 8.8.8 Patch installation is completed, Network Edition customers will need to run another package update/upgrade process to obtain the updated Network Edition-only packages available from newly added package repository.

Note: This patch should be installed only on all mailbox nodes running in your environment. On other nodes, other packages need to be installed to upgrade OpenJDK and ClamAV, as per the below instructions.

OpenJDK/ClamAV Installation Instructions for Non-mailbox/MTA nodes:
**This note is applicable only if upgrading from 8.8.8 Patch 4 or previous versions to Patch 6. Ignore if you are upgrading from 8.8.8 Patch 5 or higher.

  • Install zimbra-core-components package to upgrade OpenJDK on non-mailstore nodes. On mailstore nodes, OpenJDK will be updated using zm-patch.
  • Install zimbra-mta-components package to upgrade ClamAV on Mailstore and MTA nodes. zm-patch will not update ClamAV on any nodes.

Thank you,

Your Zimbra Team
