    Zimbra Support:

    Please find the answer for your queries in line.


    Scenario 1:

    Migrate user's account from serverA to serverB without interrupting the user.


    You can follow the below steps:


    1. Install the fresh ZCS 8 on new server.
    2. follow the below wiki

    Platform and OS Independent ZCS to ZCS Migration Using Rsync - Zimbra :: Wiki



    Scenario 2:

    > upgrade ZCS8 open source to NE on same server. and restore user accounts from a backup.


    Upgrade from OSE to NE is easy and no reinstall required. You get an NE license file from Zimbra, put it on the server, let Zimbra know its there during upgrade.



    # ./install.sh -l /<path-of-license>/ZCSLIcense.xml -x



    As it is a open source backup is not available, you can run rsync to take complete '/opt/zimbra' directory as a backup.

    Result:

    The first scenario you sent, talks about moving the same version to another server, the Open Source and Network Edition files and file structure does not match. So I can not simple overwrite the NE files with OS version.


    I tried the 2nd scenario, everything went fine, but nothing changed. When I login to admin, I still see the open source options only. None of the NE options are there. So essentially I just added the license but did not get any of the Network Edition features.


    What should I do next?

    Thank you for the update. Did you activate the license?.



    Go to global settings -> license tab and activate the license.


    IF license tab is misisng, Please deploy the license zimlet.


    # su - zimbra
    $ zmzimletctl deploy com_zimbra_license.zip

    flush the cace

    $ zmprov fc zimlet


    note: if the open source codes do not have that zimlet, then Please download and deploy the attached zimlet.

    Zimbra Support:

    Open source backup is not supported and we do not have any recommended document for ZCS 8.



    The below forum posting might be helpful for your reference, but again this is not supported.

    Zimbra opensource Hot backup and restore


    You can simply run the same version of Network edition ZCS installer on open source. This would add the NE packages and then install the license.


    Will the above overwrite the current setting and user accounts that are currently running on the opensource installation ? That is, will the user email accounts on the current opensource ZCS-8 be LOST once I run the network edition ZCS-8 installer ?


    zimbra community - please help, thank you
