Scripting Zarafa Server Updates

Zarafa Collaboration Platform is the email server of choice for our new customers. With that said, we have a lot of these installations being maintained in production. Below is the first run through of an automation script I wrote last year to update Zarafa to the latest release for users who are not using apt-get. Note this script is just the basics and can be easily modified to be run via SaltStack after the update has been tested in the development environment. Please note that on lines 24 and 25 of the attached script that the zarafa-ical and zarafa-gateway upstart scripts are being removed as this particular client does not use them. If they are in use in your installation, please ensure you either comment those lines out or remove them from the script altogether. Updates can be found here.
