    Default Moving Zimbra Files to a new SAN

    We have a SAN with a defective Chasis, we have a replacement SAN and would like to move the data over to the new SAN.

    I would like a step by step on how to point Zimbra to the new location. We plan on moving the data using rsync, please let me know if there's a preferred method.

    I have been reading that we can use zmcontrol, here's the output from running zmcontrol --list :

    Volume id: 1
    name: message1
    type: primaryMessage
    path: /opt/zimbra/store
    compressed: false
    current: true

    Volume id: 2
    name: index1
    type: index
    path: /opt/zimbra/index
    compressed: false
    current: true

    Volume id: 3
    name: index2
    type: index
    path: /data/opt/zimbra/index2
    compressed: false
    current: false

    Volume id: 4
    name: message2
    type: secondaryMessage
    path: /data/opt/zimbra/store2
    compressed: false
    current: true

    Volume id: 5
    name: remote
    type: secondaryMessage
    path: /remote/opt/zimbra/store
    compressed: true threshold: 2048 bytes
    current: false

    There is also an option to edit these volumes under Zimbra Admin.

    If there is any documentation on the wiki page that explains this, a link to the documentation will be sufficient.

    Any information will be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is /opt/zimbra on the San as well and require moving, or just the message store?
