    Default move zimbra to new server / different os

    Hi, I have done a practice run from server to server ( same OS / hostname etc) and it all went well, following this article » Zimbra :: Blog
    Now I want to move from SLES 11.1 to CentOs 5.6
    I'm running Open Source edition 7.1
    A lot of the articles I have read are now getting quite old, are there going to be any additional things to watch when doing the move?
    The arch is the same at 64 bit.
    Thanks for any tips etc.
    Regards Peter.

    Age doesn't make the articles invalid, it's the same procedure moving from one server to another. The only exception to this is if you're moving from 32bit to 64bit server, you'll need to follow the relevant article for that.

    Default Question about moving to a new server...

    I've attempted to do a move to a new server as is says in the wiki... but the administrative zimlets never got setup and are missing from the admin control panel on the new server. The instructions for the migration say to not start the services on the new server (this prevents the zimlets from being initialized). How do I get them setup on the new server?

    Edit: I'm running 7.1.1 on both servers. The old server is running ubuntu 8.04 and the new server is running ubuntu 10.04
