    Default Recommended way to test migration 32 to 64

    I'm prepping to migrate from 32bit to 64bit (7.2.4 - RHEL 5 to REHL6) - however would like to test the migration before actually doing it. Since zimbra requires hostname / mx record checks - what's the recommended way to get past this for testing.

    Hi jpctx ,

    The best way to test the migration is using ZeXtras Migration Tool.
    You will be able to export ALL data from a running production server and then import ALL to a completely new empty server, automaGically.
    If the migration will be ok for you, you will be able to do an incremental migration to destination server before put it into production.

    Best regards.

    I was looking at their tool as an option as well. So when you export the mailboxes - it still retains it on the old server? Also how do you do an incremental migration?

    Thx
