    Default Migrating Zimbra 6 beta rc1 to NE 6.0.1

    I'm trying to follow the instructions at ZCS-to-ZCS Migrations » Zimbra :: Blog and move things from the beta host we were testing on to the new early-adopters host. It's not working so well. :/

    [zimbra@betahost ~]$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" >/tmp/juniper.tgz

    Then I copy the juniper.tgz file over to /tmp/juniper.tgz on the new 6.0.1 server, chown it to zimbra, and run:

    [zimbra@zimbra tmp]$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/juniper.tgz
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: POST failed, status=500 system failure: tgz formatter failure)

    What am I missing? Suggestions?

    I experienced the same issue with 6.0.1

    Try removing the &resolve=reset from your postRestURL command, that worked for me.

    Perhaps someone should open up a bug report on

    That did it! Many thanks from my cranky beta testers, who didn't want to have to rebuild all of their filters from scratch.
