    Default Rollback NE Trial to OS edition?

    Point me, please to a link explaining how to roll back a Network Trial, to the Open Source Edition?
    I'm testing the Trial for a client who has been relatively happy with OSS. The ZCS 4.5.6 OS edition we were running crashed out, and so we've reinstalled ZCS 5 on a fresh Ubuntu, and I want to sample the additional features of NE (including hot backups?) to evaluate whether it's worth the cost.
    (30 users, low volume, price-conscious business).
    (we were able to salvage mailboxes, but the MTA was somehow corrupt beyond help)

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction,
    rick

    Perfect - (I was searching with different terms).
    Now, then...can I use the same install folder and script that I originally extracted when I installed the recent ver5x OSS before the trial? Or should I download and extract a fresh tar file (using the same zimbra version, of course)

    IOW, is there anything in that original install directory that will adversely affect the rollback?

    Thanks for all the help,
    rick

    Download the exact same version you're currently using for NE, but the FOSS binary instead from http://www.zimbra.com/community/downloads.html

    Hmmm, looks like the rollback, using the same old install directory works pretty slick. No problems with my single testUser.

    Time to (re)start the Network Trial and reimporting my little gang of users....and take the server box back to the user's office,
    They've been stuck out on hosted BlueTie.com for about a week since this server belched.

    Thanks,
    rick

    Posts are crossing, Mike --
    I had teh OSS version, then went up to NE, and I just now rolled back to OSS using the same install folder, that I originally used this morning. no other changes, other than creating a user.
    It looks like it worked OK.
    Should we do a fresh download, or are we safe this way?

    You can use your original FOSS installer tar/folder, that's fine - just not the NE tar/folder.
