    Default Migrate mailbox from Zimbra to Zimbra

    Hi All,

    I have 2 mailstores which I now have a requirement to migrate user from one mailstore to another mailstore within the same network.
    Eg. UserA@mail01 ---> UserB@mail02

    I need to copy everything over including calendars and contacts.

    I have tried to search for IMAPSYNC on Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and just found out that it is not longer available. I found that I can use IMAPCOPY but it does not copy calendars and contacts.

    I found this Zimbra to Zimbra Server Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki and I like to know if this still works for Zimbra 7.2.0? Any other better way to do what I need to do?

    Thanks & Regards.

    Hi - I recently used IMAPSYNC from this website for migrating from a non-Zimbra server to Zimbra => Official imapsync migration tool ( release 1.564 ) - worked great.

    Another option with zimbra would be to backup the users Mailbox on the source system:

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m {users_account_on_source_system} getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > {user_backupfile}.tgz

    After that you can import the backuped file into the target system:

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m {users_account_on_target_system} pru "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=skip" {user_backupfile}.tgz

    The account has to exist on the target system - you could also create the account before importing by script. Every command has to be used as user zimbra.

    Regards
    Toby

    I strongly suggest you to try ZeXtras Migration Tool, it is free, powerful and very easy.

    I did migrate 4000+ accounts a few months back. I used ZeXtras to migrate calendars, contact, preferences and imapsync1.219 to migrate emails. IMAPSYNC is still available somewhere out there; Google is your friend. I migrated ZCS6_32bit on RHAS5 to ZCS8_64bit on RHAS6_64bit. Hope this helps.
