    Smile Migrating from ZCS Network Edition 4.0.3 to 4.0.5 installed on another server

    So, I had a problem with migration from one server to another.
    This is how I solved this problem:

    1. backup /opt/zimbra/backup & /opt/zimbra/storage

    2. install zimbra 4.0.5 and configure it properly

    2.1. if you had multiple domains, create those domains on new server before doing enything else

    3. copy backup & storage folders of old server to new one into same location

    4. switch to zimbra user by typing "su zimbra"

    5. type "cd /opt/zimbra/backup"

    6. then type "zmrestoreldap -lb label_name_goes_here" for example "full-20061207.050018.654"

    7. then you can type "zmrestoreoffline -a all" it will restore all acoounts and mailboxes

    7.1. In case if you had all accounts restored but no mails in it, you have to restore eache account manually, i.e. "zmrestoreoffline -a account@yourdomain.com"

    8. When you will complete all the steps start zimbra by typing "zmcontrol start"

    That's it. Hope this topic will help to someone.

    Welcome to the forums and thanks for the post.

    It is useful but only for the Network Edition, most of us in the forums use the OSS edition.

    It's the zmrestoreoffline that's the problem, it doesn't exist for the OSS version. There's already a thread about 'hot backup/restore', I don't know if you';ve seen it already but maybe you could help on that idea? If you've got the time, that is.
    Regards

    Why would you need /opt/zimbra/storage ? Isn't /backup holding everything already ? I assume a full backup was performed prior to the move...

    TIA...
