    Default Mailbox Migration

    Hello All

    I want to move mailboxes from one Zimbra server to another. I am using ZCS 4.5 open source edition. Since the OS version does not have 'zmmailboxmove', is there a one shot way to go about this? And if not how do we go about migrating mailboxes and all the associated content?

    Thanks,
    s

    If you are replacing the zimbra server I think its ok to stop zimbra in the original server, make a backup of /opt/zimbra and openup in the new server.

    Just make sure the servers have the same name/ip and that the new server must have all the needed packages installed, maybe if you try to install in the new server zimbra it will ask for the packages it need.

    Hi

    I would also like to migrate specific user account(s), in addition to having the capability to move the entire server. Is there a solution?

    Thanks,
    s

    The OSS bits support neither zmmailboxmove nor backups, so your only real option for incremental migration is external to ZCS: imapsync for email folders, and REST export/import for calendars and contacts. See the "User Migration" wiki page.

    Depending on your infrastructure, cloning /opt/zimbra and deleting the accounts you did *not* want moved to the other server might actually be easier. But if you had the money for an advanced SAN infrastructure, you'd probably have the money for NE, too.
