Steps to remove broken soft links after upgrading to ZCS v8.7.x



Problem:

After upgrading from v8.6 or older versions to v8.7.x there are multiple broken soft links of third-party tools remains in "/opt/zimbra/".


Solution:

From the starting of ZCS v8.7.x all third-party tools are moved to directory "/opt/zimbra/common/", so we can remove broken directory links from "/opt/zimbra/".

Here are the steps to get list of broken soft links and steps and then remove manually.

1). Command to get broken soft link list.

find /opt/zimbra/ -type l ! -exec test -e {} \; -print 
OR 
find -L /opt/zimbra/ -type l 
OR 
find /opt/zimbra/ -type l | xargs file  | grep "broken symbolic link"   


Example:

Output of above command will like the following entries.

root@ztalk:~# find /opt/zimbra/ -type l | xargs file  | grep "broken symbolic link"
