Reinstall all Zimlets and Admin Extensions


When you upgrade your Zimbra Release to a newer one, you will need to reinstall all the non-core Zimlets and Admin Extensions.

Only the core Zimlets are enabled after the upgrade. Zimlets that you customized and/or deployed are preserved during the upgrade but will be disabled. As upgrading of customized Zimlets cannot be tested before the release, Zimbra recommends that you verify that your customized Zimlets work correctly before re-enabling them for your end-users after the upgrade. Note: When upgrading to Zimbra Collaboration 8.5.x and later from a previous major ZCS version, the upgrade step disables Zimlets that are not the core Zimlets for ZCS in all COSs. If you have enabled other Zimlets at the account level, you might need to manually disable these Zimlets. (Bug 77836)


  • Get the installed zimlets list,
zmzimletctl listZimlets

You need to copy the names from "Installed Zimlet files on this host" Tab Now save the list in the following file using vi editor,

vi /tmp/zimletslist

Once you are done with saving, run the following command lines,

for i  in `cat /tmp/zimletslist` ; do  zmzimletctl undeploy $i ; done
zmprov fc all
cd /opt/zimbra/zimlets-network
for i in `ls ` ; do zmzimletctl deploy $i ; done
cd /opt/zimbra/zimlets
for i in `ls ` ; do zmzimletctl deploy $i ; done
zmprov fc all
zmmailboxdctl restart
