Provisioning User Accounts > Migrate Existing Accounts and Import Account Email

Migrate Existing Accounts and Import Account Email
You can provision multiple accounts at one time using the Account Migration Wizard from the administration console. You can import accounts from either a generic IMAP server or from another ZCS server.
You can also import account names to provision from an XML file that you create.
Note:
You can run the migration wizard one time to provision accounts and import data or you can run the migration wizard the first time to provision the accounts and then run the wizard again to import the provisioned accounts’ email.
Whether you get the account records from an LDAP directory or use an XML file, you need to set the password requirements for the newly provisioned accounts. The options are to have ZCS randomly create passwords for each account or to set the same password on each account. You have the option to force users to change the password when they sign in the first time.
When provisioning is complete, the wizard generates a .csv file with a list of new accounts. This .csv file includes the passwords that were generated. You should download this file for future reference. Choose a secure location to store the file as it can contain password information for the user accounts you provisioned.
If you running a split domain configuration, you can set the SMTP host and port in the wizard. For more information about split domains, see the wiki article about split domains at http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Split_Domain.
