    Default Migrating from SuSE 9.3 to Fedora 5

    Hi all,

    I'm looking at migrating over from SuSE9.3 OS to Fedora 5 this weekend. I'm currently running Zimbra 3 and would like to run the beta version of 3.2 on the new server. Is there an easy way of importing my information store once I've migrated to Fedora 5 and installed Zimbra 3.2? Any tips on the migration would help.

    Thanks!

    Ron.

    Just make sure you have a backup in a safe place.
    I would recommend that you upgrade to FC4 because that way you don't have to upgrade to a beta (depending on when you plan on doing it)

    Move your files to a safe place,
    install your OS,
    install the zimbra ver of the backup,
    stop zimbra
    copy your backup files over your working copy
    install zcs again
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms
    chown zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra/*

    That should do it.. . .I think.

    Good luck,
    jh

    Thanks for your input. Currently my Zimbra server is SuSE 9.3. After taking a Redhat course, I want to migrate to a Redhat flavor OS, Fedora 5. So I was just curious if there is anything special I need to do to move the data over. I will take your steps into consideration.

    Thank you!
