Hm, I would nevertheless suggest to switch to OpenPKG. This is still  
the only Kolab Server system "certified to work" ;)

Start by setting up a second test server with OpenPKG and test migrate  
your data from the OpenSUSE version. That should not be too hard. Once  
you are certain this works fine you simply switch the servers and  
continue with OpenPKG. This is really recommended especially if you  
run the server in production.
