This article contains information on how to use the zmrestore restoreToTime option. More on zmrestore can be found at CLI_zmrestore_Network_Edition_only.
The -restoreToTime option replays redo log sequences until time specified. When using this command, use the -lb argument to specify a full backup that took place prior to the time of the backup you wish to restore.
zmrestore -a email@example.com -restoreToTime <arg> -lb full-xxxxxx
Restore stops at the earliest possible point in time if more than one point in time restore option is specified. Specify date/time in one of these formats:
"2008/05/12 17:03:31 681"
Note: TimeArguments with blank spaces must be surrounded in quotes.
zmrestore -a firstname.lastname@example.org -restoreToTime "2008/05/12 17:03:31 268" -lb full-xxxxxx
Note: After performing the following point-in-time restore, you should run a complete backup for those accounts to avoid future restore problems with those accounts.
A good way to test what your restore is going to look like is to restore to a new target account where a prefix is prepended to the original account names:
zmrestore -a email@example.com -restoreToTime <timeArgument> -lb full-xxxxxx -ca -pre restored_
In this case a new account is created named firstname.lastname@example.org (you could then grab out the material you want, imapsync, or choose to run the command without the new target/test account).
