    Question Importing a 5.0 full backup into a fresh 6.0 system?

    Hello,

    I'm planning to migrate from zimbra 5 to 6.
    Doing so, I'm also planning to change my hosting at the same time.
    I use the 2 zimlets for Posix and Sambra authentification.

    Therefor, my question is :
    Is it possible to make a full backup of the 5.0 accounts, and use the restore tool in the 6.0 to perform the migration ?

    Or should I install V5.0 on my new server, import the V5.0 full backup, and then upgrade to 6.0 using Optimizing 5.0 to 6.0 LDAP upgrade ?

    Or another process maybe ?

    The aim is too reduce the downtime of my services.

    Thanks for you help.

    Regards,

    This should be the right step.

    "Or should I install V5.0 on my new server, import the V5.0 full backup, and then upgrade to 6.0 using Optimizing 5.0 to 6.0 LDAP upgrade"

    And please keep in mind you need to keep the same OS even with the same 32 bits or 64 bits.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I didn't catch you about the OS restriction ?

    I'm running on ubuntu 8.4 hardy right now. I'd like to have Fedora on my new hosting solution. I can't reuse the data from my current server ?

    There are many threads in the forums plus wiki & blog articles on moving to a new server with a change of operating system, have a read of some of them:site:zimbra.com +move +"new server" +"operating system" - Yahoo! Search Results
