    Default update from network edition to open source

    I have a ZCS network edition and I need to revert to open source as the license expired

    how can I update to open source,

    I see threads that advised to update to open source when the license expired and they mentioned that there are threads that explain the update to open source but I can't find any threads about that I just found update from open source to network edition
    please advise.

    There are plenty of threads in the forums on how to move from NE to the OSS version. Take a backup of NE using the inbuilt backup, take a backup of the /opt/zimbra directory structure (with the server stopped) - details in the forums and wiki. When you've done that, run the './install.sh' script just as you would for any normal upgrade (you should use the same OSS version as the NE version that's installed). Start your server and hope it all works again.
    Regards

    could you provide me a link with that cause as I mentioned before I can't find a wiki that explain in steps update from ZCS 6.8 2678 network edition to open source
    all I can found is the contrary (update to ZCS network edition from open source )

    and how to move ZCS in new server

    I've already given you the steps to 'upgrade' from NE to the OSS version - all you need to do is download the same version of Zimbra as you have installed and then run the install script. Make sure you take backups as I've also mentioned.

    Kindly read my comment that is surrounded by #


    Take a backup of NE using the inbuilt backup

    #######################################
    What do you mean by inbuilt backup if backup the mailboxexs I canít do that because the licence expired
    #############################################

    Take a backup of the /opt/zimbra directory structure (with the server stopped)

    #####################################
    That means that Iíll use zmcontrol stop
    Then take backup of opt/zimbra as follow
    Create a folder that hold the copy of opt/zimbra named backup
    Mkdir backup
    Then change the owner of the backup folder
    chown zimbra:zimbra /backup
    I took that from this wiki
    Network Edition Moving from Open Source to Network Edition ZCS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    cp Ėr opt/zimbra /backup
    then I should install the oSS which correspond to the network edition I have using this command './install.sh'
    I have problem in downloading the open source correspond to the version I have ZCS 6.8 2678 as I found
    Zimbra open source version 6.0.13 not 6.8 2678

    Then obviously you can ignore my comment but you should have planned for this before the licence expired.

    There has never been a version 6.8.2678 in either the NE version nor the OSS version. I guess you mean 6.0.8? It's on the downloads page - all the previous versions are there.

    thanks phoenix for your support

    about the planning I didn't know that backing up will be stopped as I searched in the forum and knew that I can't add new users when license expired as mentioned in this forum

    [SOLVED] What happen if I don't renew the license ?

    I didn't know that backing up mailbox is considered as a feature like outlook connector and mobile sync

    right I mean 6.0.8

    I found the open source version in archives tab

    about backing up /opt/zimbra
    is the procedure I mentioned is right


    #####################################
    That means that Iíll use zmcontrol stop
    Then take backup of opt/zimbra as follow
    Create a folder that hold the copy of opt/zimbra named backup
    Mkdir backup
    Then change the owner of the backup folder
    chown zimbra:zimbra /backup
    I took that from this wiki
    Network Edition Moving from Open Source to Network Edition ZCS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    cp Ėr opt/zimbra /backup

    Just do the first (backup) step of this article: Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki - do not under any circumstances do any other steps in there that involve deleting directories. When you've done that you can run the 'upgrade' to the OSS version.
