    Has been a great help with the post:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthr...7407#post27407

    Can anyone else help us out?

    Tar up /opt/zimbra on Server1

    move it to Server2 and untar and access email like normal.
    It will be a different hostname and IP.

    So Server1 has live email and Server2 has a stale copy of Server1 that can be accessed.

    Well, your first problem is going to be tarring up.
    This has caused a lot of problems for some of our forum members.

    We(being some of us mods) don't reccommend tarring up. Rather, rsync is a better solution.

    rsync -av /opt/zimbra [target location]

    Then, go to the wiki on how to change the hostname.
    IP Address shouldn't matter as much, but the hostname might.

    Default I got it up just cant see mail

    Well with my tar version I have gotten zimbra up and made a new admin account.
    So I am able to log in and see my users and see the megs of mail per user.
    However, when I try to actually view mail of a member to test it , it goes to the server1 and doesn't stay on server2. I am assuming this is the mailserver url and can I change that?

    I have used the example in the other thread to change hostname but it didnt appear to make a difference or at least stick with a restart.

    So I not sure if rsync would make any difference now. The biggest problem is getting into the mail.

    It really is not a good idea to change the hostname.

    My suggestion is still Building a Mirror
