Per User Mailbox Backup (OE Version)

Revision as of 13:23, 23 April 2007 by Artturi (talk | contribs) (How to use it)

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
