Zenoss 4 appears to have been axed

    Just tried to get Zenoss 4 code from SourceForge and it would appear that all the code has been removed.

    Follow this link http://sourceforge.net/projects/zenoss/files/zenoss-4.2/zenoss-4.2.5/zenoss_core-4.2.5-2108.el6.x86_64.rpm/download   on the Zenoss wiki to get the base Zenoss code and you get:

    "The "/zenoss-4.2/zenoss-4..-2108.el6.x86_64.rpm" file could not be found or is not available. Please select another file."

    Follow this link http://sourceforge.net/projects/zenoss/files/zenup-1.1/zenup-1.1.0.267.869d67a-1.el6.x86_64.rpm/download   to get the latest 4.2.5 SUP patch and you get the same message.

    Run the auto-deploy script referenced here - http://wiki.zenoss.org/Install_Zenoss  and you get a similar failure.

    Now I know Zenoss don't want to SUPPORT Zenoss 4.2.5 - their end of maintenance statement here - https://support.zenoss.com/hc/en-us/articles/202991725-End-of-Life-Product-Support-Dates-  says maintenance would stop in june 2018.  BUT THAT IS A VERY DIFFERENT POSITION THAN REMOVING ACCESS TO ALL Zenoss 4.2.5 (and earlier) SOURCE CODE.

    Is this a mistake, Zenoss?

    Or is this a statement that says Zenoss is officially no longer open source?  I thought code on SourceForge was supposed to be there ad infinitum?

    There are a lot of people still using older versions of Zenoss.  Some of them will move to other solutions rather than moving to Zenoss 6.

    If you are a Zenoss 4 (or earlier) user, please respond here - just so we can get a view of the scale of the problem  (even if you are one of those forum readers who never post ;)   ).

    Cheers,
    Jane

    @Jane - SourceForge site is in the process of being updated. Older versions (2, 3, etc.) were removed. Working on the uploads today and will post back when the latest ones are up. Meantime the latest version 4 and version 6 of the Community Edition are on this community homepage. Version 6.3 on the horizon.

    Cheer​s!

    Thanks for the update @John  - ETA?

    Also, the spirit of open source is that you do not remove access to code - period.  There is a current thread on the forum that is clearly still using Zenoss 3.  I would suggest ALL code should be restored.

    Obviously this also includes older SUPs, pristine packages, both versions of the zenup code, along with the various Zenoss Core rpms.

    The auto-deploy script needs access to the dependencies code (also currently broken):

    wget --no-check-certificate http://deps.zenoss.com/yum/zenossdeps-4.2.x-1.$els.noarch.rpm

    For clarification, the base Zenoss 4 Core code is NOT available from the forum links - only SUP743 is.

    For anyone who needs Zenoss Core code at various older levels, I have somewhat of a collection of Core, SUPs, etc - please ask here and also email me directly.

    Cheers,
    Jane​

    Hello @Jane. In progress. SourceForge uploader a bit wonky. Reviewing v4 and 3 today. Thanks as always for your input. Cheers!

    It is now a week since I reported that source code access has been removed, @John and we still only have SUP743 for Zenoss Core 4, plus the 4 base files for Zenoss 6.  Please may we have an update on progress and an ETA for restoration of "open source"?

    Thanks,
    Jane​

    @Jane - Per previous post...the site is in process of being updated and this was planned for this month. If there is some pressing need for one of the out of maintenance versions please email me directly. Otherwise as previously posted I will post when we have completed posting the versions that will reside there moving forward.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Well, some parts of  zenoss core 6.x sources are not published as well.

    https://community.zenoss.com/forum/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=b752b4c1-afe0-4476-a032-d2ed4faf9fd4&CommunityKey=ba789fd6-c599-47ee-ba6c-4b265c33facb&tab=digestviewer#bmb752b4c1-afe0-4476-a032-d2ed4faf9fd4 is not answered.

    So, it seems Zenoss Inc. has chosen the way to have Zenoss Core (mostly open sourced) community just for a PR.

    Version 4 files are posted. Finishing up version 6. OVA's and ISOs will not be on SourceForge as they exceed their files size limit. 

    Cheers!
