Topic: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Hi, all.

Tutorial of upgrading dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x is available now:
http://www.iredmail.org/wiki/index.php? … 1.1.to.1.2

With dovecot-1.2, you can store real-time per-user quota usage in SQL, enable expire and ACL plugins, etc.

Hope you enjoy this upgrading smile

P.S. Dovecit-1.2 will be installed by default in next release of iRedMail, 0.7.0.

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Tutorial doesn't work under debian lenny. It doesn't install 1.2. Probably because of the missing "-t lenny-backports" after "sudo apt-get upgrade dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d".

Fixed, added '-t lenny-backports'. Thanks very much for your feedback. smile

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

There's also another Problem which is stopping dovecot from starting up. In my dovecot.conf I had to comment out following lines under "protocol managesieve"

    sieve = /var/vmail/sieve/%Ld/%Ln/dovecot.sieve
    sieve_storage = /var/vmail/sieve/%Ld/%Ln/

and those two lines had to be added into a plugin tag. There was already one with just "sieve=", so I just added sieve_storage to it.

# Per-user sieve mail filter.
plugin {
    # For maildir format.
    sieve = /var/vmail/sieve/%Ld/%Ln/dovecot.sieve
    sieve_storage = /var/vmail/sieve/%Ld/%Ln/
}

After those fixes dovecot starts without a problem. smile

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Hi,

when I follow the tutorial of upgrading dovecot under Debian lenny the upgrade process wants to upgrade several other packages.
Because there is no hint in the tutorial I aborted upgrade.
So my question is if it's ok to upgrade also all other packages?

root@mail:/var/vmail# apt-get -t lenny-backports upgrade dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Can nobody answer the question of my previous post? I'd like to upgrade dovecot but I'm unsteady about the other packages.

10

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

It's safe to upgrade dovecot with other packages which apt-get recommend.

11

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Thanks for the answer.

I'll upgrade the system during the next hours and if I encounter some errors I'll be back ;-)

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

ok, I am back...

After the upgrade and the changes described in the wiki first all seem's ok, receiving mails is fine.
But then I tried mail sending and got the following error:

Dec 13 12:05:14 mail postfix/smtpd[23043]: warning: when SASL type is "dovecot", SASL path "dovecot-auth" should be a socket pathname

Sending mails fails. And I do not see the error because the authentification part was not touched...

Can you please help me again?



Finally I found another error:

Dec 13 11:59:44 deliver(www-data): Error: sieve: failed to stat user's sieve script: stat(/var/vmail/sieve//www-data/dovecot.sieve) failed: Permission denied (euid=33(www-data) egid=33(www-data) missing +x perm: /var/vmail) (using global script path in stead)
Dec 13 11:59:44 deliver(www-data): Error: sieve: main_script: failed to stat sieve script: lstat(/var/vmail/sieve/dovecot.sieve) failed: Permission denied (euid=33(www-data) egid=33(www-data) missing +x perm: /var/vmail)
Dec 13 11:59:44 deliver(www-data): Error: sieve: main_script: internal error occurred: refer to server log for more information. [2010-12-13 11:59:44]
Dec 13 11:59:44 deliver(www-data): Error: sieve: failed to open script /var/vmail/sieve/dovecot.sieve

This occurs when the awstats cron job tries to send mail to a mailaccount which had have working sieve rules before upgrade.

In Postfix main.cf, you have this setting:

smtpd_sasl_path = dovecot-auth

Change it to below setting and restart postfix will fix it:

smtpd_sasl_path = ./dovecot-auth

Seems this mail is delivered to web server user (www-data).
Since 'www-data' is not a virtual mail user, there's not mailbox for it, and this is correct.

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

The dovecot-auth problem seems solved by your tip but I can not send mails anyway.

Dec 13 12:27:30 mail postfix/smtpd[23426]: warning: xxx.pool.mediaWays.net[77.181.ww.xx]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6

After enabling debug in dovecot.conf the logs revealed the following:

Dec 13 12:42:00 auth(default): Info: ldap(itsok@domain.de,77.181.xx.xx): bind search: base=o=domains,dc=domain,dc=de filter=(&(objectClass=mailUser)(accountStatus=active)(enabledService=mail)(enabledService=smtpsecured)(|(mail=itsok@domain.de)(&(enabledService=shadowaddress)(shadowAddress=itsok@domain.de))))
Dec 13 12:42:00 auth(default): Info: ldap(itsok@domain.de,77.181.xx.xx): unknown user
Dec 13 12:42:02 auth(default): Info: client out: FAIL    2    user=itsok@domain.de

Seem's curious while receiving mails works...




I will analyze the other problem with www-data later.

Found the problem: auth searchs for "enabledService=securesmtp" in LDAP but this service is not set anywhere. Seems that this was not used before. After adding this attribute sending mails works.

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Seems you didn't update your iRedMail to latest version. It's mentioned here: http://iredmail.org/wiki/index.php?titl … ing_values

19

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

Nope, I've done the update and the mentioned services are in place.
Also I've run the python script to update services (-rw-r--r--  1 root root    2045 12. Jun 2010  updateLDAPValues_051_to_060.py).

And by the way "smtpsecured" is not described in the update.

Re: [FAQ] Upgrade Dovecot from 1.1.x to 1.2.x

imapsecured, pop3secured are already present.
