Migrating from ZCS NE 7.1.3 to ZCS NE 8.6 ubuntu latest LTS

Hi BarathS,

I've never tried ZeXtras, neither the migration tool, or the rest of products. I've heard that should work. But honestly, having a Zimbra tool which you can use, I will not use other third party tools.



Let us know your feedback, and please mark as Verify Answer if this is enough info.



Have a great Sunday.



Best regards

I'm not convinced the order in which I can achieve this migration from ZCS to ZCS(New ubuntu) there really isn't a confirmed way of doing and see multiple migration documentation which has led to too much confusion, We have the ZCS Network Edition, since the technical guidance support is still available for ZCS version 7, will Zimbra support assist in migrating?, can i make a call and talk to someone how the migration can be done? I have been reading past migration discussion on this forum and have also come across with "http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Ajcody-Notes-Server-Move" what approach is this?

Hi BarathS,


If you have Network Edition, then please go to http://support.zimbra.com/ and you will be able to talk with a Engineer, by email and by phone too. So they will tell you the best way to do it.



Best regards!

[quote user="BharathS"]NP Jorge, I also see there is a Zimbra migration tool known as ZeXtras which also seems to be a way i can achieve the migration, what is your thoughts on this?[/quote]The ZeXtras Migration Tool does work, it works well, it's free to use and the support from the ZeXtras team is exceptional. I've used the product many times with the NE & OSS versions of ZCS, try it before you do anything else - what have you got to lose?

Regards

Thanks Pheonix, but being a Network Edition customer I believe there have to be technical supported provided by Zimbra as the version I am using still supported till march 2015 so in case of any screw ups since i'm not a zimbra expert and I don't know the support from ZeXtras is paid or Free and the priority weight the case would have if I run into serious issues with very little time to resolve.

Hi BarathS,

Use your Network Edition Technical Support, is the best way here. As I said ZeXtras can have a exceptional support, but is still a third application provider.



Let us know how it's goind with the Official Zimbra Technical Support, is awlays welcome the feedback.
