I have a backup of a 5.06 /opt/zimbra directory that I tarred and unzipped on a new machine. It's exactly the same as the old machine. I know this issue has been covered extensively, but I simply cannot get over it. I have been searching the forums for the past several days and have tried installing and reinstalling many times.

I have the original tgz release of Zimbra that I installed fresh on the new system. It worked fine. I moved the /opt/zimbra from that install to a zimbra_506, then unzipped my old zimbra install into /opt/zimbra.

I then went through the installation program again. I get this:

I have tried all sorts of combinations of editing the config.save and manually changing the ldap urls and ldap address fields. It doesn't seem to read from whatever changes I make. I am totally out of ideas and would appreciate any advice. It seems like this should be a straightforward recovery.

Thanks,
