    Default Convert NE to the OSS version of ZCS?

    I am sure this is covered somewhere I and I missed it but here we go. Our company in there wisdom decided they did not want to pay for the full version of Zimbra any longer. So now the license is expired and I was told by the previous admin that it would revert to the Community version after the License expired. I am still getting the warning that the license has expired and I can not add new accounts to the server. Is there something that I need to run that will put it back into community version without losing everything that is there.

    Yes, this has been covered in the forums. The NE versions will revert to the OS versions with a few exceptions and adding new accounts is one of them. What you need to do is take a backup of your ZCS server (stopped) /opt/zimbra directory structure - there are backup scripts in the wiki and the forums. When you've done that you need to run an "upgrade" with the exact same version of the Open Source edition of ZCS that you currently have installed. That will give you a fully working OS version of ZCS.
