    Lightbulb Migrating OSE to OSE via NE, is it allowed by license?

    I have usual task for this forum: to migrate 6.15/ubuntu8/32 to latest/ubuntu10/64 (or, may be to ubuntu12).
    As many of IT-sts with greedy bosses, I used the OSE ZCS. But it lacks the migration/backup internal tools. There are many workarounds I found on this forum, but I never seen the following proposal:

    1. NE becames OSE after the trial period expires
    2. Upgrading OSE/8/32 to NE/8/32
    3. Backing up this old-new installation with built-in zmbackup
    4. Installing NE/10(12)/64 onto new server
    5. Restoring data, saved on step 3 with built-in zmrestore (or whatever)
    6. Killing old server
    7. After trial period for new NE/10/64 expires, it becomes OSE/10/64.

    It seems to be much easier than other ways I've seen here. Is anything wrong with my idea?

    NB. It is just an idea, I did not made such transition because I will not to "steal", and I just want to know what does Zimbra crew thinks about.

    Why don't you just follow this guide (obviously ignore the NE steps for your OSS version) to move from one server to another?

    Because now I running OSE/32 on old server and will run OSE/64 on new server.
    And the guide not applicable to "pure" OSE because it have no internal migration-assistance tools like zmbackup/zmrestore. And the guide you referred to would be used in steps 3-5.

    Or have I missed something and NE migration guide will be fully applicable for OSE one?

    That is the whole point of the article, moving your ZCS install from a 32bit to 64bit server (with a change of operating system if required).

    Of course it's applicable, it applies to any version of ZCS and you can use any linux tool (rsync) to copy the required files from one machine to another.

    Search the forums for several threads by users that have done that with the OSS version and read the article in detail.

    Thank you. I really has wrong thoughts about the guide you talked about. And I have mis-thinked about something other, which will involve zmbackup/zmrestore. It seems that only step 8 "Now run a full backup, type zmbackup -f -a all. " is not aplicable to OSE.
