    is the full backup using the administrative console is the same thing as copying the /opt/zimbra directory?

    I really want to make sure I backup everything before upgrading to the latest version

    No it is not the same. Backing up /opt/zimbra will capture everything; whereas running one through the Admin console will save all the LDAP config, emails and blobs. I would suggest you run a full backup through the Admin GUI, then shutdown Zimbra and perform a full tar backup of /opt/zimbra.

    thanks uxbod

    sorry about my ignorance but can you tell me how to shutdown zimbra completely and how to tar backup my /opt/zimbra folder

    and from there... in the release notes it say you can upgrade straight from 5.0.9 to 6.0.6

    Upgrade Process
    The upgrade path to 6.0.x is ZCS systems at 5.0.2 or later can upgrade
    directly to 6.0.x.
    If you are running a version earlier than 5.0.2, you must first upgrade to 5.0.2
    or later before upgrading to ZCS 6.0.
    Important: Upgrades from ZCS 5.0.19 or later 5.0.x releases to ZCS 6.0.0 or
    6.0.1 will fail. We recommend customers running 5.0.19 or later 5.0.x releases
    upgrade to 6.02 or later 6.0.x releases when they choose to move to the 6.0.x
    series. (Bug 42609)

    so the only thing left after my backup would be to download the latest version and run install.sh

    is that right?

    1) Create a new folder as root where you have space to backup eg. mkdir ~/zcs-backup
    2) Change to that directory
    3) /etc/init.d/zimbra stop
    4) ps aux | grep zimbra (check to make sure all processes have died)
    5) tar cf zimbra_backup.tar /opt/zimbra

    You appear to be a NE client for which have you considered contacting Zimbra Support for help with the upgrade ?

    You may also want to read my account of this, while remembering that it is *so* not official that I can't even explain it to you:

    You didn't actually *read* all of my postings, did you? :-)

    Yes, copying that much data can take half of forever. Using AJ's rsync trick makes the copy process impact your downtime window *lots* less.
