I am currently using CALDav Server Solaris.  I want to migrate to Calendar Server 8.x Linux.  I have already done a davadmin config list on the old and new server to compare the configurations and they look fine.

 I'm going to do "davadmin db backup" from the old Solaris server and then "davadmin db restore" on the new Linux server. Will that work?
 I believe, that in the past, event notifications have gone out when restoring a backup. Am I mistaken?
 Is there anything else I should be on the lookout for?
 Finally, my plan is to upgrade the calendar server to the latest version of 8.x.x.x. Can I go strait to the latest version of 8.x.x.x or do I need to do some intermediate upgrades?
 I may want do a test restore to make sure things will work as I expect before my after hours outage. I would like to make sure no event notifications go out after my test restore. How can I make sure of this?
 If I end up doing a test restore, what are the steps I need to do during the final restore? Should I do a "davadmin db restore -O"? Or do i need to do a "davadmin db init" and then a "davadmin db restore"?
 My production outage will be at midnight on Sunday. I did a test restore tonight. I have never done a caldav restore. It took a real long time to restore (35 minutes) to restore a 465MB backup file.  How can I speed it up?
 I'm not able to accept Google Calendar invitations in Convergence after upgrading. How do I fix this issue?
