    Default Migrating from Zimbra to Zimbra

    Is there an easy way to do that keeping everything like it is including email, contacts, aliases, rules, tags, events ...

    Use case: moving from one service provider to another.

    Thanks Thomas

    So moving hosting providers-
    This a dedicated server/do you fully manage the boxes at that point?

    If you can match os'es all settings down to hostname your just going to copy the /opt/zimbra (and any linked) directories

    Will you be changing operating system versions as well?

Do an upgrade install on the new server and you should be good to go. I'm assuming that your new server will have the same IP & FQDN as the old server. That should be about it.
    (IP will obviously change in dns/hostfile-but your server name should stay the same till your comfortable running the change name script-after a good backup, because people have mixed results)

    It's being revised-but if your changing from 32-64bit: Network Edition: Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit Server - ZimbraWiki
