Changing Linux distros & keeping Zimbra data?
I'm toying with the idea of changing our zimbra test box with 4 users from Fedora Core 3 to CentOS 4.2.
For that number of users, I could just copy mail out via IMAP and export contacts. I would miss calendar data though.
I'm currently backing up by stopping zimbra and archiving all of /opt/zimbra
I imagine that restoring /opt/zimbra on a different OS (same ip and hostname) would be asking for trouble?
What directories should I be restoring for just user and settings data?
Moving from FC3 to CentOS
CentOS is a very good Linux distro. Several of my crew are running it and have nothing but good things to say.

We're running Zimbra on RHEL4 and have had no issues to report. marcmac recommended you upgrading to RHEL4 as an interim step before moving forward with CentOS. For us, that was the end game and seems to be working. Just my $0.02...
