    Default migrating zimbra to another server that is already running zimbra

    Hi.. I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on the best way to accomplish this. We have two servers running 4.5.4 NE, one on SLES9 and the other on RHELx64. They each have been running for a while and have their own domains and users etc set up already. We've decided to retire the SLES9 server and need to migrate all of its accounts and data to the RHEL server, without destroying the data and configuration already on the RHEL server. Any ideas?

    Wouldn't backing up the data from one machine, provisioning the accounts on the new one and then a restore do what you want?

    Perhaps....

    I am assuming I don't want a full backup with LDAP, because restoring that would overwrite the current LDAP on the new machine?

    And if that is the case, what exactly would I need to manually provision in the LDAP on the new machine? Just the domains being migrated, or all of the accounts as well?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    You can restore individual accounts on the new server, there's an article in the wiki that covers this. I'm also assuming that both systems are the same Zimbra version?
