    Default Zimbra VM Migration

    All,
    Here is my situation, and I am looking for some advice. I have 2 virtual servers, each part of a single zimbra cluster, configured as follows:

    mailhost1.domain1.com:
    • LDAP
    • LOGGER
    • MAILBOX
    • SNMP
    • SPELL
    • STATS


    mailmta1.domain1.com:
    • ANTISPAM
    • ANTIVIRUS
    • IMAPPROXY
    • MTA
    • SNMP
    • STATS


    together these servers represent the mail solution for external-domain.com.

    My customers from external-domain.com have elected to move the servers to their premises. Since the server are all virtual, I see no real issue with this, except for how I should deal with the domain / hostname changes for the servers themselves.
    For example:

    mailhost01.domain.com will become mailhost01.external-domain.com
    mailmat01.domain.com will become mailmta01.external-domain.com

    So what I am wondering is if there is a documented process for changing hostnames for servers in a ZCS cluster without performing some sort of Zimbra -> Zimbra migration.

    FWIW, these servers are running: Release 5.0.20_GA_3127.UBUNTU8 UBUNTU8 NETWORK edition

    The customer purchased the licenses and all, and the MX records / DNS is easily enough prepared.
    Has anyone ever done anything like this before?
