    Default New ZCS

    Hi i'm currently running FOSS 5.0.16 OpenSUSE10.2 32bit.

    For various reasons, i need to move to a newer machine which sorts of rules out SUSE and the 5 series release.

    My existing install was setup with a test domain, then changed to the real one, but no matter how hard i've tried, there are remnants of this test domain in the logs.

    My current backup system takes a weekly snapshot of /opt/zimbra and a daily (an archived export of each mailbox using zmmailbox and the getRestURL -> tgz file.

    I've had a look in the *.tgz file an apart from *.meta files, the data seems to be just *.eml, contacts and folders etc.

    So i'm gonna attempt the following: -

    note down all configuration settings my current zimbra

    make a new one using centos and FOSS 6.05 i think.

    recreate the domain from scratch, accounts, aliases, etc etc.

    then import the accounts and see where i am.

    has anyone done this?

    thanks

    Neil

    Good choice. Make sure you have the domain and all your setting are correct (including Split DNS and the hosts file) before migrating the users.

    That sounds like a reasonable plan, do you have many users and are you exporting their accounts from the User Preferences? If not, how are you migrating them?

    Yes, I've done that several times.

    I have written some scripts on my linux box,

    it creates a text file listing all user accounts, then sequentially works through the list doing a zmmailbox getRestURL to a tgz... and from the guide i'd read you can reimport these mailbox's to another zimbra instance so long as the user mailbox exists.

    i have no problem with the DNS, running a dd-wrt router using DNSmasq as local dns with properly configured mx1 records.

    just been looking at another centos box i have running in the building and i really dont like it, compared to SUSE so i'm gonna try an 6.0.5 64bit with SLES 11 x64
