zmdbintegrityreport is introduced in ZCS 4.5.6. It uses mysqlcheck to check for mysql db corruption.

Starting with 4.5.7, the upgrade script calls zmdbintegrityreport, and displays any errors that it may find.

Please DO NOT stop the upgrade due to this error because after displaying the errors, the install script will run "mysql_upgrade" with the correct parameters to fix the issue.

After the upgrade you can then run "/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmdbintegrityreport" again to verify that there's really no more error.

You don't need to repair the tables manually prior to the upgrade.

The zmdbintegrityreport errors were caused by bug [19008] http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19008, which has been fixed in 4.5.7.

Please also note that repair table does not work on innodb tables.
