    Default [SOLVED] How do I move mailboxes on ZCS OSE?

    Professionally, i manage a ZCS NE multi-server install. On this licensed and paid for install, I'm able to easily move mailboxes from one store server to another using zmmailboxmove.

    Personally, i run a ZCS OSE server. I'm working on migrating data from a dead mail server to a new server, i'm attempting to do this by restoring the dead server's backups to a VM, and then joining my new server to it as a multi-server install. I'm going to then move my mailboxes from one store server to the other, and then shut down the temp VM.

    The problem is, i just foind out that zmmailboxmove is NE only.
    Is there an OSE equivelant to this? I only have about 20 accounts to move, so i dont mind having to do some legwork for each move. How can i migrate them?

    Thanks!

    Create accounts on the new server

    - On the old server use zmmailbox to export the accounts.

    Code:
    zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/user@domain.com.tgz
    - Copy those exported accounts to the new server

    - Use zmmailbox to import

    [code]zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/user@domain.com.tgz

    Not as easy as zmmailboxmove but it works. Obviously any shares will have to be re-established after the import.

    Thanks! I'd actually remembered this procedure while i was waiting for a reply. This confirms though, that this is indeed the accepted method.
