Discuss your pilot or production implementation with other Zimbra admins or our engineers.

Can I simply restore all my users to my new 64 bit system from the interface insteadt

Postby timothyalangorman » Thu Sep 06, 2012 8:34 am

Sooo,


I have a few questions......
First .. Here are the specs...
124 active users: approx 400 gb data
Current system

32 bit Centos 5.7

Zimbra 7.0.0_GA_3077
Test system:

64 bit Ubuntu Server 12.04 lts

Zimbra beta 8

__________________________________________________________________________


I staged a pre-release v8 beta system on a test domain with full MX funxtionality (direct to DNS no NAT)
I decided to test the functionality of briefcase as my company does use that feature quite extensively. I exported my briefcase docs (from my current 32 but setup) and they all imported cleanly and were 100 functional.
I was wondering if It migh be an option to actuially use the import export option to mugrate to the new 64 bit system.



I understand that some things would be lost... But what ones???


Server configurations./..

user specs? ( signatures / selected themes / other things)

COS's

learned spam (I'd rather start fresh anyway)

shares created (the shares would bneed to be re-sent for users)
Has anyone ever done this to have a clean no baggage install of zimbra much less do a 32-64 bit migration?

Can I cross Zimbra versions? (It's worked for Briefcase but there are other more complex things to migrate I'm certain)
Thanks Timg
