I am looking at moving my postfix-cyrus server running on redhat 7.2
with cyrus 2.0.9, cyrus-sasl-220.127.116.11 and postfix 2.2.3-2.
I am about to migrate to a new server. I will be running Centos 5 which
uses cyrus 2.3.7-1, cyrus-sasl-2.1.22-4 and postfix 2.3.3-2. The
postfix, cyrus-sasl issue is easy. But I was wondering how to move my
mail stores from the old server to the new server. I had several
different ideas for this.
Right now my mail is spread across 4 partitions. I want to move the mail
into one partition. This is the process I thought I could follow.
Since I only have 110 users, I could use a script to recreate my
mailboxes on the new server.
I would copy my saslpasswd file, rebuild it into a saslpasswd2 file and
make cyrus the owner.
I then would copy the cyrus.cache, cyrus.header, cyrus.index and the
mail files into the appropriate mailboxes and then run reconstruct.
Is this a sound idea? If not, what other suggestions are out there.
