We're looking to migrate from an existing zimbra server to a new one.
The servers are very similar, and we've tried to change as little as possible on the new OS. The only significant difference I can think of is that the IP has changed.
Some info about the system:
OS: 8.04.4 LTS
Last night, we tried this method: Moving ZCS to Another Server » Zimbra :: Blog
Unfortunately, we got this error upon multiple attempts:
I also realize that the blog post in question is over three years old and deals with zimbra 4.5, so it may well not apply.
Restoring existing configuration file from /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/localconfig.xml...done

Tonight, we're planning on trying this: Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki Specifically, the ldap export and import.
Can anyone offer advice on this? We're trying to use a rsync vs a backup for the bulk of the data because the transfer takes quite some time, and when using rsync we can just do a final sync right before the cut over.
