    I been tasked with moving our Centos 5.7/Plesk 10.4.4 server to a new facility with new ip addresses. I thought this would be a good time to move to VMware and after some post P2V lvm boot problems things appear to be working nicely. I used reconfigurator.pl to change ip addresses and am ready to bring the VM copy live however I want to make sure I don't lose any changes, new email etc. I have altered the soa ttl in preparation but before cut over I would like to run rsync.

    If I shutdown email and prevent any logins can I just run

    rsync -avz /var/qmail/mailnames/ root@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/var/qmail/mailnames/ to ensure the old (local) and new (remote) mail directories are synced.

    I would also sync

    Anyone know if this will work and if there any other directories I should be getting?

    Thank you,
