ZCS 651


  • Use UBUNTU12 OS and install 8.7.1 network
  • Upgrade from 8.7.1 to 8.7.2 network


  • Fresh installation works fine for UBUNTU12 network
  • Works fine for UBUNTU12 foss
  • Works fine for RHEL6, RHEL7, UBUNTU14, UBUNTU16 network & foss both (Only reproducible with UBUNTU12 network so far)

Work around: Change ownership to zimbra for /opt/zimbra/data/ldap/config/cn=config/cn=module{0}.ldif file and restart upgrade.
