    Default Migration from one machine to another

    I am trying to migrate Zimbra (zcs-5.0.5_GA_2201) from one machine to another:
    * I copied the /opt/zimbra tree to the new System (also Ubuntu 6.06)
    * also the content of /tmp to the new systen
    * /etc/init.d/zimbra, /etc/passwd, /etc/shadows, /etc/group

    Trying to start Zimbra, a password is requestet. I deeper look shows, that a LDAP password is required.

    ? How do I get rid off the password request?
    ? Why is the origin machine able to start without a LDAP password?
    ? Which file holds the passwort?

    thx in anvance,

    Hi, the method you have used seems reasonable, but it's not the recommended way.

    Have a look at this link, following these instructions should leave you with a functioning system. Moving ZCS to Another Server » Zimbra :: Blog
