    Default [SOLVED] What Need to be done to migrate from 32bit to 64bit?

    I have decided to move my zimbra email server 6.03 32 bit to 6.04 64 bit. What do I have to do to migrate the files to the other server without messing up all the current setup?

    Thanks

    It would help if you updated your profile with
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    so it gives a clue to what OS you are using

    What if I copy the entire zimbra directory to a remote location and restore back after setting up and configuring zimbra on my 64 bit machine, will that cause any trouble?

    I am a bit confuse about the first step:
    su – zimbra
    openldap/sbin/slapcat -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf -l /tmp/ldap.ldif
    6.0+: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapcat /backup
    What does it do? Is it a single line command or 2 seperated commands

    Also, do I have to stop zimbra first by entering the following command zmcontrol stop, before starting the openldap command.
    Again, I am not sure if I am using openldap, but I know that I am authenticating through my external ldap. In that case do I have to run the commands above. I thought the openldap is for the internal zimbra authentication.

    Please help me understand.

    Thanks

    Yes, it will cause you lots of trouble i.e it won't work. The reason for the migration is that the openLDAP data needs to be migrated to the 64bit system.

    You might like to review this documentation: Network Edition: Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit Server - Zimbra :: Wiki

    So after doing the above changes, all you need to do is copy over the zimbra directory? or is there more to do just by following the link above?

    No
    it is one command for you since you are already in 6.0 it will be
    6.0+: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapcat /backup

    the second line is for pre-6.0
