I tried by performing rsync of /opt/zimbra directory from old to new server and then restarted the services

#zmcontrol restart

it had taken everything from old server. no errors reported.

still i suggest to have a look on below option available in restoration.

---------------------
zmrestore Options
Problems mostly revolve around these options.
To Times In The Past (If -lb Isn't Used, Implies Your Using Times/Incr/RedoSeq AFTER Last Full)
-restoreToIncrLabel
<arg> Replay redo logs up to and including this incremental backup
Requires: --label or -lb
-restoreToTime
<arg> Replay rodo logs until this time
Requires: --label or -lb
-restoreToRedoSeq
<arg> Replay up to and including this redo log sequence
Redolog Variables
--backedupRedologs or -br
Replays the redo logs in backup only, which excludes archived and current redo logs of the system
Only useful when restoring against latest full backup (NOT using the -lb option).
Will restore using incremental backup data after the last full backup as well but NOT including any redolog activity.
--restorefullBackup or -rf
Restores to the full backup only, not any incremental backups since that backup.
The default behavior of zmrestore in general is to always play from a "full" and "incrementals" that are associated with it UNLESS you state otherwise.
If you do:
zmrestore -a user@domain.com -lb full6monthsago
It will playback the incremental data associated with that full from 6 months ago.
If you do:
zmrestore -a user@domain.com -lb full6monthsago -rf
It will ONLY playback the data in the full from 6 months ago.
Will not progress past the data that's in the last full backup, no incremental backups after it in other words.
Implies NO redolog play, so there's no need to use -br.
Targets And Labels
--label or -lb
<arg> The label of the full backup to restore. Restores to the latest full backup if this is omitted.
--target or -t
<arg> Specifies the backup target location. The default is <zimbra_home>/backup.
Impact Of AutoGroup Option Being Used
Place for notes about how autogroup backup option might impact or limit command options.
