    Angry Easiest way of migration OSS to NE

    We are already using Zimbra open source edition since last six months. now we are interested in Network Edition. My question is, What's the easiest way of migration to the new server without losing a bit of data? is there any migration tool available for zimbra OSS to zimbra NE ? I am looking for something like zimbra pst import wizard tool to import my user data into new server.

    Thanks,
    Jamal

    Sir,

    I am taking about migration tools, easier procedure (GUI). I don't want to migrate whole server to the new NE server but only few users. Actually I am planning to use NE and OSS both using split domain technique and thus I need a tool to take a backup of individual user mailbox and copy into new mailbox (same user) on NE server.

    Thanks / Regards,

    Jamal

    User Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki You can also export contacts via the UI and Calendar via the REST interface.

    The method suggested by phoenix does work I have tested it myself with contacts and calendar items, for email just setup two imap accounts in an imap client of your choice to both servers and drag the email across.

    Thanks mike, I will try your method soon. What about contacts? Contacts are very important for me. I don't care calender. Is it possible to move contacts across IMAP accounts. I am planning to use thunderbird for above.

    Thanks,

    Jamal

    There are no shorter instructions, you need to follow the instructions exactly in the link I've posted. All the details you need are there including the link to the source for building IMAPSYNC.
