    Are the UID/GIDs of the Zimbra user the same ? Did you perform a dummy install of ZCS, then remove /opt/zimbra, and then copy you existing installation across ? Ensure the permissions on /opt/zimbra are correct, and it would not harm to run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms as root aswell. Have you read this Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki ?

    Default

    Why not change the hostname to the old server then ? Will you new server need to take over the originals IP address aswell ?

    Please review the wiki article link I posted. One point in it states
    On new server, install the same version of ZCS and Keep the "hostname" and "zmhostname" same as old server.

    You need to ensure that DNS is all working fine aswell with respect to MX/A records.
