If you're moving entirely to a new server - I would suggest to backup/restore the SQL database itself. If you need to, you can adjust the "location" values from the sogo_folder_info. Using sogo-tool backup/restore will modify the c_lastmodified for all entries, which means the collection tag will change for every single addressbook and calendar. That means the CUA will usually force a full refresh of each collection. For 4,000 users, that might put some stress on your server.

Hi Ludovic,

ok, I'll try it with sql backup and restore. Regarding modification of the location tables in sogo_folder_info: Do you mean to change the servername in the values? So there ist in my sogo.conf and the postgresql db is still on local machine, i asume there is nothing to modify. Isn't it? For example: postgresql://<user>:<password>@ - nothing to change, from my point of view.
Regarding stress on my server, we have vacation time at moment, and all our systems are bored...
...but on 1st of October, semester startup, i'm sure all red lights will raise - as usual. ;-)

I can imagine many scenario where a user wishes to migrate from an old server to a new server.
A migrator script that "just works" and migrates sogo fully automatically, would be very cool !
