    Default Zimbra to Zimbra Migration

    I've got a Zimbra 4.0.2 installation on Debian that started as a Zimbra original release (3 series or even prior I think) on FC3. I was always able to upgrade the point-releases during the 3 series, but after going to 4 I have not been able to successfully upgrade (always roll back). I suspect it has to do with how the system is setup (DMZ, with mixed internal and external names).

    I'd like to move zimbra to run under VMware on new equipment. I've got an instance of Ubuntu 6.06 and I've been able to install a fresh instance of zimbra 4.0.4 on it. I've copied my zimbra data from the debian server to the new one, but I can't get it to run.

    I'm wondering if I'd just be better off moving the accounts over. I can sync the mail easy enough through IMAP sync - but what about the calendars and contacts? Is there a tool to assist with this?

    Default vmware

    I'd recommend some hefty hardware if you're thinking of vmware. I tried it for a while and it was quite sluggish. I didn't dig too deeply into the why's but it seemed to be cpu bound with java. And this was with a dual core 4400+ and dual core support in vmware.

    The 4.5.2 release is pending, perhaps it will cover the issue you're having.

    Ah. so maybe in a week there is a new version or tool to be released?

    FYI: hardware is pretty hefty - dual quad-core xeon, 4G ram. my current zimbra install is on a dual dual-core xeon with 3Gb ram - CPU is about 6% max and ram almost never swaps.

    On which instance are you asking? My live instance that can't upgrade from 4.0.2 or when I try to move that instance to Ubuntu VM and get it running?

    On the live instance, I installs but then the Zimbra interface won't run and gives a weird error. On the VM instance, zimbra tries to start - get's as far as trying to start ldap - says done and then exits - but ldap never starts.
