    Default [SOLVED] Migrate from Community to Network

    All,
    This may be a silly question, but I have been running the Community Edition of ZCS in production for several months. We have recently decided to install BES, which led me to purchase licenses for ZCS. However, all of the directions that I read say to go to the admin console, and then go to:

    Global Settings -> Licenses

    in order to install my newly acquired licenses. However, this does not exist in the Community Edition. Is there now way to move directly from Community to Network without doing some sort of re-install? Can I "upgrade" from Community 5.0.18 to Network 5.0.18 to install the license (my users aren't quite yet ready for 6.0.2 yet)?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Follow the following..

    Backup in full:
    Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki
    * Double check that it really backuped up everything

    Upgarde from OSS to NE:
    1) Get Zimbra Network Edition license
    2) Download the Zimbra Network Edition installation file. The version you download must the same or a newer version of Zimbra and for the same operating system.
    3) Copy your Zimbra license to /opt/zimbra/conf
    4) Perform the Zimbra upgrade process. its as simple as runnig the new install packge ./install.sh

    Zimbra will then be upgraded from Open Source to the Network Edition.

    if case of problem..either rollback to your backup or ask Q here

    Raj,
    Sweet! Thanks. I am actually running a multiserver install. Is it a safe assumption on my part that I will need to get the LDAP host upgraded first, and then I can do the other?

    Thanks again Raj. I will be using VMWare snapshots and backups as my safety net. I appreciate your help!
