    mail server host names during migration

    Hello,

    I am wanting to do a migration for my mail server that is running Zimbra open source (32bit). I have a new server that I am migrating to and I am curious if the hostname should be the same as the one I am migrating from. Also should the new mail server have the same IP as the old. I understand that they could not be on the network at the same time.

    Thanks

    Don Hickey

    Hello Don,
    welcome to the forums!

    ZeXtras Migration Tool doesn't export/import server congurations, so both the IP address and the host name of the new server can differ.


    Have a nice day,

    Cine,

    Thanks for the response.

    I have another question, but I think I will watch the videos again before I ask them. I thought that those settings were being brought over (for example if the current host name is mail.123456.org then the migrated server should be at mail.123456.org).

    Thanks
