Proxy Component Option

Proxy component option:

Non-Proxy Component Option

  • This option would work if you do not require pop/imap access for your clients, in otherwords - your clients are basically using just the http/s protocols for access. [ZWC, Active-sync, ZCO]
  • This option will redirect the user to the mailstore they are on regardless of the initial url path given. But it will then update the url path to correctly reflect the mailstore for the resource. In otherwords, it will not hide the fact there are multiple mailstores being used. If you want end-users to just be aware of one hostname - period - then you'll need to use the proxy service.

Non-proxy component option:

  • Install new mailstore [ref: Install Guide]
    • Packages would be: zimbra-store, zimbra-apache, zimbra-spell
      • Your current server already is 'logger host'.
  • You'll set this variable on both servers :
    • To see current setting:
      •  zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraMailReferMode
    • To set option:
      • zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMailReferMode wronghost
  • Add one user to new mailstore, test access
  • Use zmmailboxmove to move user's to new mailstore

Other Options

Other options at your disposal are:

  • Contact Professional Services for them to help with your deployment & changing in environment.
  • If you have not already,look into our Training classes.
  • Setup a test environment that allows you to note what issues that you might encounter and would allow support to address those specific questions prior to your attempted changes in production.
