    Default Migrate from 5.x NE to 6.x NE

    Hi
    There exist so many migration guides so am getting confused. In official documents for NE I can not find much about this subject. It's hard to decide so maybe the community can help me and point to a guide that is suitable for my case.

    Am having a Zimbra 5.0.21 Network Edition that we do not know how a previous administrator has configure. So we have set up a new Zimbra 6.0.61 Network Edition that we know is clean and streamlined. It's about 15 accounts that needs to be migrated. I prefer if I could do them one at a time. Thinking about running it as a split domain for a little while.

    Both machines are running Ubuntu 8.04. I have of course passwords on both servers to everything except the individual mail accounts. It's primary emails that needs to be moved. I do not believe anyone are using the calendar, briefcase and so on.

    Any suggestion what guide to follow or what command to use?

    Why not just export each of the accounts from the old server then import them into the new server or read the Release Notes for the Zimbra to Zimbra migration tool.

    Thanks Phoenix for the suggestions. It sounds like a good plan.

    You suggested two ways to move the accounts.
    • Export each account and import them on the new server. I have searched the official documentation for export possibility and found something about export/import from Web GUI for the clients. Is this what you mean?
    • Zimbra to Zimbra migration tool" sounds good. Where can I find more information about this tool?


    Worth mention, is that two of these mailboxes is over 10GB each.

    Yes, that would be via the Web UI and it means you would need to login to each account and export the mail.

    That's detailed in the Release Notes (P11) as I mentioned earlier.

    That shouldn't be any problem, I've exported and imported mailboxes larger than that.

    Very nice. Great that mailboxes above 10GB is working. Thanks for the help Phoenix.

    To not create a stub here, the "Release Notes" Phoenix are talking about, is the official ones supplied for 6.x. It can be found here. The Zimbra to Zimbra migration tool is the command "zmztozmig".
