    Default Recommended upgrade path - 7.1.4 NE on SLES 10SP2 to 8.0.6 NE on SLES 11SP3

    What would be the upgrade path to take Zimbra from 7.1.4 NE running on SLES 10SP2 to 8.0.6 NE on SLES 11SP3?

    The same as moving to any new release of ZCS on a new server - ZeXtras

    How about a 'rolling upgrade'?

    It's not recommended to do an in-place upgrade of your chosen distribution from one major release to another and with recent SLES problems with their SP releases my advice would be to change to another distribution (such as CentOS6). Using ZeXtras to move your mail, users and server config to a new server would be trivial.
