Manually sync files and mails from NS7 to NS8?

I like to copy/sync files and mails from NS7 to NS8…

NS7 files path: /var/lib/nethserver/ibay/
NS7 mails path: /var/lib/nethserver/vmail

Can someone please tell me what are the target-paths on NS8, working as a mailrelay and windows-fileserver?

NS8 mails path should be (debian):

NS8 files path:

Not tested but rsync could do the trick

However you could have some issue of file permissions but I bet if you restart the ns8 services selinux will accordingly set the good permissions in the podman volume

At least it is a dream not tested but this is a true issue you bring


rsync -avz -e ssh /var/lib/nethserver/vmail root@ns8:/path/2/volume

runagent -m mail1 systemctl --user restart dovecot
