I inherited a Zimbra system that was setup and installed by a previous administrator. While I like Zimbra, I don't really like the way it was setup and I need to upgrade it anyway as we're having problems with it. Am I biting off more than I can chew by trying to upgrade versions, as well as re-install the host?
Here's the scoop.
Present setup is:
- Zimbra, Version 3.1.3_GA_474.RHEL4 Jun 9, 2006
- CentOS 4.5, Linux <ourbox.com> 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Jun 26 14:30:58 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I'd like to move to a current version of Zimbra, and preferably move to 64bit OpenSUSE 10.2, though I'd be OK with using the 32 bit version. It's running on a Dell server with a PentiumD dual core.
My plan was something like...
- Backup/dump all Zimbra data.
- Backup/dump Zimbra configuration
- wipe box
- Install OS
- Install latest Zimbra
- Restore configuration
- Restore Data
I know I'm probably asking for trouble, but I don't think I'll have a choice on this.
Any help, tips, links, etc. would be enormously appreciated.
