Upgrade Zabbix Server to 3.0 on Debian 8

The instructions are laid out in Upgrade procedure. Also version specific notes are at Upgrade notes for 2.4.7, nothing note-worthy so I decided to go ahead with it. First let’s stop the Zabbix services on the server:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 05:56:28]
└─[1] <> sudo systemctl stop zabbix-server.service
┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 05:57:28]
└─[0] <> sudo systemctl stop zabbix-agent.service

For safety, dump the zabbix db:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 05:56:41]
└─[0] <> mysqldump --databases -u root -p zabbix > zabbix-03-26-16.mysql

Compress it to save space:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 05:58:38]
└─[0] <> tar cpvfj zabbix-03-26-16_sql.tar.bz2 zabbix-03-26-16.mysql
zabbix-03-26-16.mysql

Lastly let’s send it over to another server for backups:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:04:15]
└─[0] <> rsync -avzP zabbix-03-26-16_sql.tar.bz2 IP:/backups/db/.

Next we can follow instructions laid out in Installation from packages to setup the apt repo. First let’s get the package to update the repo:

wget http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/debian/pool/main/z/zabbix-release/zabbix-release_3.0-1+jessie_all.deb

Next let’s install it and overwrite the sources.list file from the older version:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:04:47]
└─[0] <> sudo dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.0-1+jessie_all.deb
(Reading database ... 101895 files and directories currently installed.)

 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** zabbix.list (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? Y
Installing new version of config file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zabbix.list ...

Next let’s update the apt cache:

apt-get update

And finally do the upgrade:

apt-get upgrade zabbix-server-mysql zabbix-frontend-php

I then checked out the /etc/zabbix/apache.conf file and it looks like the api directory is no longer shared and neither is the class one. So I commented out the old directories and added new ones:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:16:51]
└─[1] <> cat /etc/zabbix/apache.conf

    <files *.php>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
    </files>
</Directory>

I then checked out the /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf and I didn’t have much to change. The settings that I used were still there and a bunch of new TLS options got added that I wasn’t really using those so I just kept both files without changing them:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:18:08]
└─[0] <> ls -l /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf*
-rw-r----- 1 zabbix root 13984 Nov 29 10:36 /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf
-rw-r----- 1 zabbix root 14890 Feb 28 01:03 /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf.dpkg-dist

Same thing for the agent config:

┌─[elatov@kerch] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:21:56]
└─[0] <> ls -l /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  7935 Nov  1  2014 /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10341 Feb 28 01:03 /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf.dpkg-dist

Then I started the zabbix server service:

sudo systemctl start zabbix-server

And checking out the logs I saw the following:

I also logged in and checked out the new UI:

Update Zabbix Agent to 3.0 on FreeBSD

For my FreeBSD servers, I saw the new package available for 3.0 agent, so I installed it. First let’s stop the old/running one:

┌─[elatov@moxz] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:43:00]
└─[1] <> sudo service zabbix_agentd stop
Stopping zabbix_agentd.
Waiting for PIDS: 542 544 545.

Then I removed the old agent:

┌─[elatov@moxz] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:44:34]
└─[0] <> sudo pkg remove zabbix24-agent-2.4.7

Then I installed the 3.0 version:

┌─[elatov@moxz] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:44:42]
└─[0] <> sudo pkg install zabbix3-agent-3.0.1

Then I copied the old config over since the options are so close (if you had any include statements pointing to the old directory don’t forget to update those):

┌─[elatov@moxz] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:45:09]
└─[0] <> sudo cp /usr/local/etc/zabbix24/zabbix_agentd.conf /usr/local/etc/zabbix3/.

Then I started the new service:

┌─[elatov@moxz] - [/home/elatov] - [2016-03-26 06:45:28]
└─[0] <> sudo service zabbix_agentd start

And in the logs I saw the following:

Update Zabbix Agent to 3.0 on OnmiOS

First let’s download the new precompiled version:

wget http://www.zabbix.com/downloads/3.0.0/zabbix_agents_3.0.0.solaris10.amd64.tar.gz

Then let’s stop the running service:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 06:58:55]
└─[0] <> svcadm disable zabbix-agent

Then let’s move the original install out of the way:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 06:59:15]
└─[0] <> mv /usr/local/zabbix /usr/local/zabbix24

And let’s create a directory for the new version:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 06:59:32]
└─[0] <> mkdir /usr/local/zabbix

Now let’s extract the compiled version in that directory:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 06:59:44]
└─[0] <> tar xvzf zabbix_agents_3.0.0.solaris10.amd64.tar.gz -C /usr/local/zabbix/

Let’s move the default config out of the way:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 07:00:10]
└─[0] <> mv /usr/local/zabbix/conf/zabbix_agentd.conf /usr/local/zabbix/conf/zabbix_agentd.conf.orig

And let’s copy the original config:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 07:00:25]
└─[0] <> cp /usr/local/zabbix24/conf/zabbix_agent.conf /usr/local/zabbix/conf/.

Then start the new version:

┌─[root@zfs] - [/root] - [2016-03-26 07:01:23]
└─[0] <> svcadm enable zabbix-agent

And in the logs I saw the following:

Upgrade Zabbix Agent to 3.0 On Pogoplug

The original setup for that is covered in my old post. First let’s stop the current agent:

pogo:~# /opt/etc/init.d/zabbix-agentd stop

Now let’s get the source

pogo:~# wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/zabbix/files/ZABBIX%20Latest%20Stable/3.0.1/zabbix-3.0.1.tar.gz

Now let’s extract it:

pogo:~# mv zabbix-3.0.1.tar.gz /opt/tmp/.
pogo:~# cd /opt/tmp
pogo:/opt/tmp# tar xzf zabbix-3.0.1.tar.gz ; cd zabbix-3.0.1
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# ./configure --enable-agent --prefix=/opt/zabbix

Initially during the make phase I ran into this error:

./../src/libs/zbxmodules/libzbxmodules.a(modules.o): In function `unload_modules':

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I have run into that issue in the past and that’s when there are 2 versions of the libdl.so file, here are the two files:

pogo~# find / -name 'libdl.so*'
/lib/libdl.so.2
/tmp/.cemnt/mnt_sda1/opt/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/lib/libdl.so
/tmp/.cemnt/mnt_sda1/opt/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/lib/libdl.so.2

The easiest thing to do is to temporarily move the other one out of the way:

pogo~# mv /opt/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/lib/libdl.so /opt/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/lib/libdl.so.orig

And also link the one under /lib:

pogo~# ln -s /lib/libdl.so.2 /lib/libdl.so

Then rebuilding worked:

pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# make clean
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# ./configure --enable-agent --prefix=/opt/zabbix
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# make
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# unlink /opt/zabbix
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# ln -s /opt/zabbix_3_0_1 /opt/zabbix
pogo:/opt/tmp/zabbix-3.0.1# make install

Then make a backup of the default config:

pogo~# cp /opt/zabbix/etc/zabbix_agentd.conf /opt/zabbix/etc/zabbix_agentd.conf.orig

And let’s copy the old one into place

pogo~# cp /opt/zabbix_2_2_3/etc/zabbix_agentd.conf /opt/zabbix/etc/zabbix_agentd.conf

Then starting the service worked out:

pogo:~# /opt/etc/init.d/zabbix-agentd start

pogo:~# ps -w | grep zab
