Use the license file you received from Zimbra to generate a new activation file.


1. Upload the license file to the Zimbra server using a utility like WinSCP and enter:

su - zimbra
zmlicense -i /path/to/license/file

2. Get the information required (fingerprint, activation ID, license ID and version) for the manual activation from the Admin Console at:

  • Global Settings ⇒ License ⇒ Manually Activate License

3. Go to https://support.zimbra.com and log in, go to the license page. Enter the required information and download the .xml file.

4. Upload the .xml file to the Zimbra server and enter:

zmlicense -A /path/to/activation/file

5. Check for successful activation with:

zmlicense -t

Work Around If This Can't Be Done During An Upgrade/Install

Please use the --skip-activation-check option with ./install.sh
