Zabbix 3.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 with Percona

After upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, I couldn’t get Zabbix to run and was receiving the following

zabbix-server[3962]: /opt/sbin/zabbix_server: /usr/lib/ version `libmysqlclient_18' not found (required by /opt/sbin/zabbix_server)

To fix this I needed to symlink the perconaclient library to the mysql client libraries that Zabbix was expecting.

apt-get install libperconaserverclient18
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
service zabbix-server restart
service zabbix-agent restart
