I wanted to bounce this off the forum community before I even stepped in to get some opinions.
I have a Zimbra Network Edition installed on a RedHat 4 Server which is running under VMware. It's been in use for a few months now and working great. Our next theory is to move it to our local site on a box of it's own. Perhaps still under VMware, that's still undecided, and frankly immaterial.
How would you do this?
Would you move the virtual machine to a local VMware server, fire it up, and make changes to the hostname etc? (I've read bad things about changing hostnames after install!)
Would you rather create a new server install and do a restore (or partial restore?) of the mailboxes onto the new system?
Other tidbits are that we would like to move from RHEL AS licensing nightmares to Ubuntu, since it's now considered supported. Doesn't have to be in this migration if it's going to cause unneeded stress to the project, making it more risky.
