    Default Changing Server OS and Upgrade

    HI All,

    I have been using 4.0.1 GA on a SUSIE 10 server and it has been working well.
    I have received a shiney new (real) server to be my new mail server. The old one was a desktop. I have installed CentOS 4.4 and will be upgrading to 4.0.2 and would like to be able to move the Susie 4.0.1 to the new server or would it be easier to just start from scratch. I am the only real user on the old system at this time but I do have some email I would like to save.

    Thanks for the help.

    I would backup using rsync
    rsync -av /opt/zimbra/* [location that you want to backup to]

    Install ZCS for the RHEL on your new machine
    Stop ZCS
    Copy over your new install with your old files
    Install over your current files, and do an "upgrade"

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    One thing I forgot to mention was that I have renamed the new server. Will that make a difference before I do the copy and update?

    Yeah, you don't want to rename the server. I wouldn't be able to shine more light on this.

    Phoenix, any ideas?
