    Default Migrate User account from one domain to another

    Our company has recently bought a new domain name and would like all the users to be using the new domain name.
    I have already checked the wiki page regarding manage domains. But that's not what we are looking for, we don't want to use masquerade or forward email. We would like to just create the new domain and have my exiting user migrated to that new domain with all there emails as well.

    Is there any way to do this?

    I have also checked other posts in the forum, but most of them are migrating to other servers.

    Just rename the domain to the new domain:

    Code:
    zmprov help commands:
    
    renameDomain(rd) {domain|id} {newDomain}
        -- NOTE: renameDomain can only be used with "zmprov -l/--ldap"
    Make sure you take a backup before you make any changes and that you've set-up correct DNS records & hostname for your server.

    Phoenix:

    thanks for the instruction

    So according to the instruction, if have want to migrate admin@original.com to admin@new.com , I would perform the following?

    Code:
    renameDomain original.com|admin new.com

    do I need to worry about the "zmprov -l/--ldap" ?

    No, you would do the following:

    Code:
    zmprov rd -l oldomain.com newdomain.com
    You're renaming a domain not a user, the 'id' in that command is for the domain ID.

    Yes, you do and you must use it as stated in the command help.
