Purpose

How to move the existing data on the secondary volume to the new storage path.

Resolution

Follow the next steps:

  • Create the secondary path
mkdir /opt/zimbra/secondary
  • Assign it the proper permissions
chown zimbra:zimbra
  • Mount new partition to /opt/zimbra/secondary - confirm permissions in directory and zimbra read/write
  • Rsync data from /other/secondary /opt/zimbra/secondary
  • Schedule a short downtime window .
  • Shutdown ZCS - confirm zimbra crontab won't be kicking off a job during downtime

window

  • Do a final rsync
  • Move the data between the secondary and the old one:
mv /other/secondary /other/secondary-old
  • Decide to either modify the zmvolume directory path for message2 volume to be /opt/zimbra/secondary, or remount and update /etc/fstab to have the 'new' partition

that was mounted at /opt/zimbra/secondary to now be /other/secondary

  • Start zimbra, confirm HSM works and no missing blob messages happen.

If you don't want any downtime, you could try using zmsoap 's MoveBlobsRequest - but there might be a bug in that approach. We have a case right now where not all the blobs moved and we're trying to thrash thru why that is.
