Problem

When automatic incremental backup is executed on the server, following message is displayed :

Found gap in redo log sequence; missing 1414 through 1446; To avoid future restore problems, discard all existing backups and take a full backup of all accounts; If this error occurred during restore, try the --ignoreRedoErrors option
com.zimbra.cs.backup.BackupServiceException: Found gap in redo log sequence; missing 1414 through 1446; To avoid future restore problems, discard all existing backups and take a full backup of all accounts; If this error occurred during restore, try the --ignoreRedoErrors option

Solution

  • During a backup if the above error is seen, the recommendation is to move the old backups out - the directories in /opt/zimbra/backup/sessions/* .

It's advised to keep them somewhere at a different location to be on the safer side and then proceed to do a full backup.

  • Another possibe cause is the /tmp or /opt/zimbra/redolog/ filling up. Ensure that there is enough disk space available.
