I'm currently using 6.0.8 open source on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. We are in the middle of virtualizing our infrastructure and I would like to make a few changes in the process.
I'm currently using standard unix user management and have about 180 active accounts. I'd like to move to Ubuntu 10.04 when its out of Beta, but I'd also like to use Active Directory authentication for my users. Luckily I thought ahead and every user account name in my Zimbra database matches their AD login name.
My question is what is the right approach?? I'm thinking create a new zimbra instance on Ubuntu 10.4, get the AD authentication working, then copy over the data store from the old zimbra? Sounds reasonable, but I want to be sure to not loose any user data.
