I have an OLD installation of ZCS (Version 4.5.11_GA_1752.RHEL4) on a RHEL server that is beginning to have critical hardware problems - lucky me.
In planning to replace my server I figured I would look into installing a newer version of ZCS at the same time. I have asked Zimbra for assistance with this; however, I understand they do not offer these types of services. I think I am just a little *afraid*.
If I get a new version of ZCS installed, should I be able to simply use my /opt/zimbra/backup directory to get everyone's accounts working on the newly installed server?
I guess, ultimately, my question is: in theory, should I be able to simply:
(1) make a copy of my /opt/zimbra/backup directory
(2) install a new version of RHEL (RHEL 5.x)
(3) install the newest version of ZCS (7.1.1)
(4) somehow recover from my copied (4.5.11) backup directory
Am I over simplifying this, or should it be this easy?
Thanks for any feedback.
