    Default [SOLVED] Migrating Zimbra to a new server

    I'm sorry, I found similar postings about this, but they only made me even more confused. Here is the synopsis:

    Current Zimbra server: 64bit CentOS
    New Zimbra server: 32bit CentOS

    The current Zimbra server will become a new Windows AD server that will eventually run Exchange. All I need to do is move everything to a new box. How difficult will this be?

    Thanks!

    OK, the transfer completed sucessfully, and Zimbra started up fine. However, I can not receive or send any mail. The web client times out when trying to send saying that the server is too slow.

    Help!

    Code:
    top
    freemem
    Perhaps update your profile aswell with
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v

    I don't understand the first lines of code you posted. I don't see any "freemem" option after I enter the "top" command.

    Also, my ldap error log shows some ldapcontext errors.

    I've tried recreating the certificates (as I found in other forum posts), but that didn't work. Anything?

    Alright, problem's solved. I ended up contacting Zimbra tech support (didn't realize that I had a support ticket left). The problem was that the passwords for postfix and amavis were not transfered from the old server to the new localconfig.xml. The tech that helped me will be updating the wiki page with this new information.

    Sorry for not responding I have the same issue yesterday when I migrated V6. Though the correct command should have been
    Code:
    free
    Was thinking of a different O/S
