    Migration from unix backend to ldap backend

    Hello,

    At this moment we are running zarafa against a unix backend (/etc/passwd). In the near future we get a ldap backend. How can we migrate our users from unix to ldap, without losing the mails?

    Thanks for the help.

    Regards,
    Dunja

    You don't lose users and email when you make sure that the uidNumber from passwd file will stay the same in your ldap setup.

    Make sure that you set the unique user attribute to uidNumber and make a backup before you do the conversion.
