    Hello imanudin11,
    welcome to the forums!

    Can you please tell us your ZeXtras Suite version and how you are migrating to the new server (Export/Import, Incremental Migration, other...)?

    Hi Cine,

    Thanks for your reply. This is step migrate from old Zimbra to new Zimbra :

    1. Migrate Username, password, Alias and Distribution list with script from Richardson Lima : https://code.google.com/p/zcsldapbackup/
    2. Migrate Mailbox with script from Zimbra Blog : ZCS-to-ZCS Migrations :: Zimbra :: Blog

    I am not use Zextras Backup to Backup All user, alias, distribution list and mailbox because i am just use Zextras for chat and Trial from Zextras have been expiry. any idea?

    sorry my poor english

    Hello imanudin11!

    You can migrate your whole ZxChat database - which includes all buddylist info - by stopping the mailboxd service on both the Source and Destination servers and copying the
    /opt/zimbra/conf/zextras/zxchat directory over to the new one.
    If you do so, please make sure that the new server is running the exact same ZeXtras Suite version as the new one.

    If you wish to migrate your data with ZeXtras Backup feel free to drop a line to the Sales Team asking for an "Extended Trial License", they'll be glad to help you

    Have a nice day,
