    Default Migration ZCS 6 to ZCS 7 And Exchange 2007 to ZCS7

    Hi

    I have installed new ZCS 7 server on ubuntu 10.04 and i want to migrate my "old" user.
    I have some user on ZCS 6.0.10 on ubuntu 8.04 and the others on exchange 2007.
    Can you explain me the best pratice to migrate the user.

    I think, i can make a full backup on ZCS6.0.10 and import it on ZCS7 ? but the server name are not the same et i want to remove some domain name

    There no tools to migrate Zcs to Zcs ? As i can see zcs use imapsync but how it recover the appointement, contact ?

    For exchange, it simply i can use the wizard tools to migrate users

    I hope, i explain clearly I m sorry for my poor english

    diablo62,

    I have used zmztozimg to migrate users from Zimbra OSS 5.0.13 to Zimbra 7 NE. You should check out the config for zmztozimg. Here's a cleaned up example of mine.

    On the Zimbra 7 server:
    nano /opt/zimbra/conf/zmztozimg.conf, then once you are ready to migrate an account, add it to the 'Accounts=' like shown below.
    # Configuration file for zmztozmig with all necessary settings
    #
    #Source ZCS server IP/name,admin user name and password, server port
    SourceZCSServer=SourceServerHere.com
    SourceAdminUser=Admin
    SourceAdminPwd=PasswordHere
    SourceAdminPort=7071
    #
    #Destination/Target ZCS server IP/name,admin user name and password, server port
    TargetZCSServer=TargetServerHere.com
    TargetAdminUser=Admin
    TargetAdminPwd=PasswordHere
    TargetAdminPort=7071
    #
    #Change ZimbraMailTransport after successful migration
    ZimbraMailTransport=lmtp:TargetServerHere.com:7025
    #ZimbraMailTransport=smtp:TargetServerHere.com:25
    #
    #Threads to run simultaneously
    Threads=1
    #
    #Specify directory for mailbox download
    WorkingDirectory=/tmp/ztozmig/mailboxdumps/
    #
    #Specify directory to contain failed mailbox tar files
    FailedDirectory=/tmp/ztozmig/mailboxfailures/
    #
    #Specify directory to contain successfully migrated mailbox tar files, if KeepSuccessFiles=TRUE
    SuccessDirectory=/tmp/ztozmig/successes/
    #
    #Specify directory to contain logs
    LogDirectory=/opt/zimbra/log/ztozmiglogs
    #
    #Do you want to keep tar mailbox files after successful migration- TRUE/FALSE
    KeepSuccessFiles=TRUE
    #
    #Specify the comma separated list of item types to be migrated. For complete mailbox migration, comment it.
    #types can have following parameters - message,conversation,contact,appointment,task,wiki ,document
    #types=message,conversation,contact,appointment,ta sk,wiki,document
    #types=contact,appointment
    #
    #resolve can have skip (ignores duplicates),modify (update older items),
    #reset (delete the old subfolder (or entire mailbox if /)) or replace (replace the existing items) values.
    #Only one value at a time as these parameters are mutually exclusive.
    #resolve=skip
    #
    #Specify Domain map - (DomainMap= From_domain To_Domain)
    DomainMap=DomainHere.com DomainHere.com
    DomainMap=DomainHere.com DomainHere.com
    #Domains to migrate in case of Accounts parameter is set to "all"
    #Domains=zcs1.example.com,zcs2.example.com
    #
    #List accounts to be migrated. Accounts should be comma (',') separated. Use 'all' to get
    #all accounts from source server.Domains parameter must be defined to list the domains to be
    #migrated.
    #Accounts=example@domain.com
    #Accounts=example2@domain123.com
    Accounts=user@domain.com
    You may want to check the ZimbraMailtransport settings:
    If you want to double check the user routing settings from the current source server do 'zmprov ga user@domain.com|grep smtp' . Here is what you should see:

    [zimbra@server admin]$ zmprov ga user@domain.com|grep smtp
    zimbraMailTransport: smtp:mx3.hostname.com:25
    If it returns nothing you may be running a split domain using lmtp:

    zimbra@mx2:/root$ zmprov ga user@domain.com|grep lmtp
    zimbraMailTransport: lmtp:mx3.hostname.com:7025
    su zimbra, cd to /opt/zimbra/libexec/ and ./zmztozimg . This will start the transfer process and show if it was successful.

    Hi diablo62.

    Maybe you can check out ZeXtras Migration Tool, a free tool for Zimbra to Zimbra migrations.

    With it the steps for your migration would be fairly straightforward:

    • Install Zextras Migration Tool to export your data from your old server.
    • Install Zextras Suite (with free trial mode) on new server to import all data.

    All the shared items in a mailbox remain consistent through the migration, as do the ACLs

    You can find the ZeXtras Migration Tool in the Zimbra Gallery: ZeXtras Migration Tool | Zimbra :: Gallery

    I have tried both, and zmztozmig seems to lack some important features like:

    - Restore of all domains and accounts configurations, even encrypted password.
    - Restore of all tags, saved searches, personas, signatures and datasources.
    - Coherent restore of all shared items and mountpoints.

    ZeXtras Migration Tool on the other hand handles this points really well.


    Regards,
    Federico

    I have not used ZeXtras but it appears to get more migrated. In my use case zmztozimg was an emergency solution tool where features like Federico mentioned were not requirements.
