great, Christian . . .

I'm moving from openldap to mysql/Samba

I had thought I'd create users in Samba (Samba has a mysql db) there's only a few, so it's not too difficult to do it manually, and other than address books, calendars and mail, there's very little to transfer

really only one office calendar and 6-8 users with mailboxes, so not too difficult to duplicate

we're moving from Ubuntu 12.04.1 to 14.04.1 and replacing openldap with Samba domain

Hello Steve Ankeny

This will move all data related to SOGo settings, calendars and address
Your user source information and postbox/IMAP content is not included.
How you transport that, depends on the kind of source you use.
1) stop openldap on old server
2) export with
slapcat -n 0 -l ldapConfig.ldif
slapcat -n 1 -l userBackup.ldif
3) move these 2 files to the new server
4) import them on the new serverwith
slapadd -n 0 -l ldapConfig.ldif
slapadd -n 1 -l userBackup.ldif
5) start openldap on new server

1) get a dump with
mysqldump --opt ${USER_DATABASE} > userBackup.sql
2) Move this to the new server
3) import it with
mysql < userBackup.sql

Also don't forget to move your sogo.conf to the new server;-)
(And change your settings for MySQL, IMAP and SMTP according to your new
