zmbackup

(Network Edition only)

This tool performs full backups and incremental backups for a designated mail host. You can either specify specific accounts, or, if no accounts are specified, all accounts are included.

This utility has short option names and full names. The short option is preceded by a single dash, the full option is proceeded by a double dash. For example, -fb is the same as --fullBackup.

Syntax

One of -f, -i, or -del must be specified.

zmbackup {-f | -i | del} -acct (account) [options]

Notes

Resulting backup sessions make use of hard links to previous backup sessions to save space on the filesystem. Take this into account when performing tape backups and when foreseeing disk usage, eg.:

[zimbra@gw1a ~]$ cd /opt/zimbra/backup/sessions
[zimbra@gw1a sessions]$ du -sh full-20080805.101920.991
75G     full-20080805.101920.991
[zimbra@gw1a sessions]$ du -sh *full*
75G     full-20080801.230004.637
2.5G    full-20080805.101920.991
[zimbra@gw1a sessions]$ du -shl *full*
75G     full-20080801.230004.637
75G     full-20080805.101920.991


Examples

In these examples, the server (-s) is server1.domain.com. The (-t) is not required if the target is the default directory, (zimbra_home/backup).

Perform a full backup of all mailboxes on server1.

zmbackup -f -a all -s server1.domain.com

Perform incremental backup of all mailboxes on server1 since last full backup.

zmbackup -i -a all -s server1.domain.com

Perform full backup of only user1’s mailbox on server1. Note that hostname does not need full domain if account is used.

zmbackup -f -s server1 -a user1@domain.com

Perform incremental backup of user1’s mailbox on server1.

zmbackup -i -s server1 -a user1@domain.com
