    Exclamation bulk mailbox migration

    Dear list,

    I have installed zimbra and it is running fine. But I am stuck at a very important phase.
    The exixting mail server has almont 50 user account and I have already imported the user
    at the zimbra server with Zmprov command as found at the wiki. Next is to migrate all the mailboxes to the zimbra server. The existing mail server is using dovecot. I have root ssh
    access to both the server. How can I then migrate all those 50 mailboxes to the new zimbra server ? Any clue is very much welcome. Already flipped through the wiki located at
    Migrating from Dovecot with External LDAP - Zimbra :: Wiki

    and it can't help me as it only works when I know the user password. As I have root ssh on both the server, any other alternative ?

    Thanks

    You don't need the user password with IMAPSYNC, search the wiki (or the forums) for details and modify the script in the article you've linked in your post above.

    Hi,
    come back with confusion :-(

    the dovecot part is clear, regarding zimbra account, the line

    ````````````````
    Do the same thing for the password you used for all the user accounts on the Zimbra server, and call this one host2pass.txt.
    ``````````````

    is confusing. Does it mean to create an administrative password for all zimbra account by htpassword
    and place it at host2pass.txt ?

    One more issue is , [dump from the LDAP server in CSV format]
    What cn/dn and credential should I use ? confused ... :-(

    Solved :-)
    the admin user/password at zimbra is the zimbra admin itself.
