    Default Copy from one server to another

    Hi, my english is very bad.
    I'm sorry.

    My problem is;
    I have one server with ZCS 5.0.10 on ubuntu 6.06 LTS server.
    The ZCS run very well.

    Now I want to copy the entire configuration to another machine with the same operating system and the installation of ZCS, but I do not want to have to create all users and settings.
    I would have to copy?
    How to?

    Thanks

    zmcontrol -v

    You can follow the following steps:
    1. Backup data on the old server (/opt/zimbra folder)
    2. Set up OS, change ip address and hostname of the new server to ip address and hostname of the old server.
    3. Setup Zimbra (the same version) on the new server.
    4. Stop zimbra and move /opt/zimbra on the new server to /opt/zimbra.bak
    5. Restore data backup from the old server to /opt/zimbra on the new server.
    6. Start zimbra on the new server and checking everything.

    Good luck!

    Personally I'd look into using Virtual machines going forward as it
    makes moving your software around almost trivial.
