    Default Moving Zimbra

    Hello all!

    I'm the system administrator at a business and just took over... I'm new to Zimbra and from what I've seen of it, we like it, and the users like it. We are using the opensource version 5.0.16_ga_2921.ubuntu8

    We are using ubuntu 8.04

    I am trying to move this email server onto a new server computer.

    I have read: Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki

    When I do as it suggests I can't find the .bak file at all

    I've tried shutting the server down and moving the opt/zimbra file to a usb drive it REFUSES keeps giving me some permission errors even when I have chmod the folder... I've logged in as root. STILL I can't get the stupid folder moved to a usb drive just to get it to the new system. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated or a complete guide on how to move them folders without it complaining I dont have permission would be great... Thanks

    Dan.

    So what are you saying, that the rsync didn't create the /opt/zimbra.bak file? Do you have enough space on that drive?
    Regards

    The only chown -R I did was on the USB disk drive... I have a lot of space on the drive... and also yes when I did the rsync command I did this command without quotes " # rsync -avrlHKpogDt /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra.bak "

    I went into the /opt/ folder and there was absolutley nothing there... could it be hidden in ubuntu?

    Did it show anything on the screen when you ran it ? Remove the 'v' in the rsync command and then post what is happening please.

    Code:
    rsync -arlHKpogDt /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra.bak
    So that it does not log all of the STDOUT to the screen. Actually run it and post what is happening. I presume you are running this command as root aswell ?

    There's nothing wrong with the format of that command, what does the output of the following show:

    Code:
    ls -l /opt
