    Default Account Migration: Import Accounts: LDAP search base

    Hi, I need to migrate accounts and mail from Zimbra 7.1.x on RedHat EL 4 64-bit to Zimbra 7.1.x on RedHat EL 5 64-bit.

    I was able to retrieve the LDAP "Bind password" from the old server...
    Code:
    zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password
    ...but I'm not sure what I should enter for the "LDAP search base" so as to copy everything. I tried (zimbraMailAddress=*) but I get an error...
    Code:
    Message: mail.osubookstore.com Error code: bulkprovision.BP_NAMING_EXCEPTION Method: [unknown] Details:soap:Sender
    I have tried both an SSL and non-SSL connection.

    Please advise. thanks.

    By the way, I cannot simply copy the /opt/zimbra/ folder to the new server because it has a different hostname and ssl certificate, and upgrading from RedHat 4 to RedHat 5.

    I also really want to know what the LDAP Search base needs to be as I have tried using this before and gave up at this spot, I'd also like to know if it's possible to keep the same user passwords with the migration wizard....

    Migrating Accounts

    The Account Migration tool opens the Provisioning tasks tab with the link to the Migration Wizard. The wizard guides you through importing data from another server. Users' email messages, calendars, contacts, and task lists from an existing Microsoft Exchange server can be moved to ZCS. When user files are migrated, the folder hierarchy is maintained.

    That's the help file >_>

    I got it to work thanks to some info from support. The LDAP search base is used to match the accounts to import:

    dc=blahblahblah,dc=com

    Where the accounts that you want to import are user@blahblahblah.com

    That will do the bulk provisioning but not import the mail. For that, use imapsync.

    Mail Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Guide to imapsync - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Imapsync: an IMAP migration tool ( release 1.484 )

    And now to try to get imapsync installed and working. Ugh.

    Bonnie,

    Just fought with that myself...

    If you go to the command line on your original box, you can run
    zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_userdn
    and get what your old zimbra server called the bind DN. For me, their default was correct. Default LDAP filter worked for me too.

    For the password you can use
    zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password
    to get your server's value.

    Sadly, the accounts seem to come through fine, but of course it's not a direct dump/upload. You end up provisioning accounts with the system and then playing with trying to get the rest of the account to sync over.
