Zimbra migration with zextra

Postby pg123 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:16 pm

I see many people referencing zextra as the easy way to migrate to a new server.

If I understand correctly the procedure is something like this:
install addon on the origin server
install addon on the destination server
export data from origin server
copy exported data to destination server
import data

I don't know how long the export/import will take and it's not clear that I could shutdown the origin zimbra server to prevent new mails from coming in. It seems like it has to be live so the plugin can do it's work. What happens when new mails come in while the export is ongoing?
