    Default Backup & Restore ZCS 8 - restore accounts after upgrade

    Hi

    following my post here;

    Plan B:
    I have now decided to do an upgrade from ZCS 8 Opensource to ZCS 8 NE on the same server.

    However, before I do, I need help/instruction on how to Backup & Restore accounts after the upgrade.


    Please guide me. Thanks

    If I'm not mistaken... you can simply install ZCS 8.0 NE the same way as if it were a version update (to e.g. 8.0.1). Not 100% sure about ZCS 8, but I'm sure this was the case with ZCS 6. It will leave your accounts intact, while adding NE functionality.

    Of course, testing this, and making a backup of your entire /opt/zimbra will be a good idea.

    Also, after the upgrade to ZCS 8 NE, the whole backup/restore procedure will be a lot easier, since the functionality is included in the admin interface.

    In your first post you mentioned it was going to be the same server, hence my suggestion of simply "upgrading" to ZCS 8 NE on this same server.

    If you're moving servers I'd suggest you install NE on the new server first and then use the built-in migration wizard (Admin login --> Tools & Migration --> Account Migration --> Migration Wizard (click the gears sign))

    Thanks for the reply Lammert;

    regarding your post above, I was about to use the migration wizard but it forces you to change the passwords of each user account. I want to avoid the user from being disrupted. Is there a way to use the wizard and keep the account settings, password, mail, calendar and contact data intact ?

    I think I found something that will work. Please confirm that I can use the whats in the links below to backup and restore user accounts and that it's applicable to Zimbra ZCS 8.

    let me know which to use/follow with for zcs8


    thanks
