I’m interested in moving a number of SME 9.2 installations to Nethserver. Installed nethserver-7.5.1804-x86_64 onto a fairly old Intel Core2Quad machine. Once I’d completed the install, I used the ssh rsync script to copy the production server over. Today I ran the final -m version.
When I finished, I checked /var/log/messages for errors. This is what was returned:
Jan 22 10:32:52 nethbox mysql.init: ERROR 1044 (42000) at line 22: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' to database 'information_schema'
Jan 22 10:32:52 nethbox esmith::event: Loading information_schema.sql into mysql [FAILED]
Jan 22 10:33:14 nethbox esmith::event: Action: /etc/e-smith/events/migration-import/S80nethserver-sogo-migrate FAILED: 255 [0.139551]
Jan 22 10:33:14 nethbox esmith::event: Event: migration-import FAILED
The sofo import failure is simple enough to explain - sogo was not installed on the SME box. I’m not sure what could case the first failure and would be interested in knowing what I should do to overcome it.
I tried starting the server with the production SME taken off the network. It came up, but with problems. I had problems bringing up the second ethernet interface, though I was able to do so eventually. At that point, I was able to connect to the internet, but there seemed to be no local or internet DNS at all.
I can try a fresh install and migrate the data from the production server again, but I would be interested in knowing if there is anything else I need to check to get a working copy of the old SME server.
