Per User Mailbox Backup (OE Version)

Revision as of 13:23, 23 April 2007 by Artturi (talk | contribs) (Method used)

This is actually *Work in progress*


This is a solution to backup mails on a user basis for the Open Source Version. It will permit to restore a mailstore for a particular user without having to restore the full /opt/zimbra directory.

It is based on a cold backup method.

Method used

- Backuped user have a specific C.O.S.
- first script connects to ldap server and builds the list of concerned users
- second script loops on the user list and creates a specific sql file with the appropriate commands for a restore

How to use it

This is how I plan to use it :

- stop zimbra - take lvm snapshot - start ldap & mysql services - run the specific scripts for user backup - start zimbra completely - run the backup as usual - close the snapshot
