    Default zmmailboxmove for Zimbra 6 OS?

    Exist any like zmmailboxmove for zimbra 6 opensource?

    i want move some mailboxes from one mailbox host to another mailbox host.

    I think do some like this:

    1.- do backup: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m getRestURL “//?fmt=tgz” > /tmp/account.tgz (see ZCS-to-ZCS Migrations » Zimbra :: Blog)

    2.- Update ldap to point the new mbox server

    3.- do restore on the new mailbox server:

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m postRestURL “//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset” /tmp/account.tgz

    its only an idea, but i dont know if it will works.

    That's effectively what the zmmailboxmove script does. You'll also want to put the account into maintenance mode so Zimbra queues up the messages while you are transferring the account so you don't lose any.

    Default how do you update the ldap?

    I am trying to figure out how to move a user mailbox from one mailbox server to the next in a opensource edition multi-server setup.

    This post is the closest think i have come to coming across a solution.
    I understand the part about backing up the mailbox to a zip/tar file and restoring it on the new server.
    The part I don't understand how to do is...

    "2.- Update ldap to point the new mbox server"

    how do i update the the zimbra ldap so that the account mailbox server points to the new server? is there an admin console method, or even a command line method of doing this?

    I would appreciate any advice

    Thank you,
