    Default Migrate from Ubuntu 6.06 + Zimbra 5.0.2 32bits to Ubuntu 6.06 + Zimbra 5.0.4 64bits


    Today I have severals Zimbra 5.0.2 Open Source Edition installed on Ubuntu 6.06 working fine.

    But all my hardware are 64bits capable, from now I want to finally migrate from 32bits arch to 64bits. How is the procedure for this job?

    I'm thinking here, maybe I need to update my Zimbra 5.0.2 to 5.0.4 on 32bits and after that, do a fresh install on other machine with Ubuntu 6.06 64bits and Zimbra 5.0.4 64bits. And only after I have the same versions on both archs, I will can do this... But sounds very difficult to perform two updates at once.

    Can I migrate from Ubuntu 6.06 32bits + Zimbra 5.0.2 directly into Ubuntu 6.06 64bits + Zimbra 5.0.4?

    Maybe I must wait to migrate from Ubuntu 6.06 32bits to Ubuntu 8.04 64bits with new Zimbra in the near future?! Will this be possible?

    Will be there a procedure on Wiki, or even here in the forum?

    Best regards,

    Welcome to the forums

    Okay the way I would go about it would be as follows :-

    1.Take a couple of backups !
    2. Follow this document Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki
    3. Take more backups of the target server

    You should now have ZCS up and running on the 64bit server. It is your choice really whether you upgrade to 5.0.4 on 32bit first, or migrate your 5.0.2 install first and then upgrade. Personally I would go for the second option as it is all working currently.
