== Zimbra NG Backup Initialization ==
 
If you're reading this page you most probably just completed the installation of Zimbra Next Generation Modules. If so, congratulations! You are just one step away from the safety of your data!
 
 
 
If this is not the case, check the [[Zimbra_Next_Generation_Modules/Zimbra_NG_Backup|Zimbra NG Backup]] page for all the informations you need!
 
 
 
=== Why an initialization is needed ===
 
To work properly, Zimbra NG Backup needs a dedicated directory on a filesystem to save all its configurations and all the backupped data. The default path for this directory is ''/opt/zimbra/backup/zextras/''.
 
 
 
The inizialization process automatically creates the folder structure and the configuration files needed.
 
 
 
=== When an initialization is needed ===
 
* Immediatly after installing Zimbra Next Generation Modules
 
* Every time the "Backup Destination Path" is changed in the Zimbra NG Backup tab of the Zimbra Next Generation Modules Administration Zimlet.
 
 
 
=== Initialization Guide ===
 
 
 
To Initialize the Zimbra NG Backup Module just run a SmartScan following these steps:
 
 
 
* Access your Zimbra Admin interface.
 
* In the Left Pane of the Administration Console select Zimbra Next Generation Modules to show up the Zimbra NG Backup Panel.
 
* Click the Backup tab (requires either the Zimbra Next Generation Modules Trial or a valid [[Zimbra_Next_Generation_Modules/License_Management|License]]).
 
* Under "Basic Backup Configuration" click "Initialize NOW"
 
 
 
Once the SmartScan is completed, Zimbra NG Backup will be fully initialized and working!
 
 
 
All informations about how to use Zimbra NG Backup and its features can be found in the [[Zimbra_Next_Generation_Modules/Zimbra_NG_Backup/Admin_Guide|Zimbra NG Backup Admin Guide]]
 
 
 
=== "Zimbra NG Backup is not initialized" ===
 
Since version 1.8.13, Zimbra Next Generation Modules is capable to detect an uninitialized Backup Path and will notify the administrator through both the Zimbra Next Generation Modules Notification System and via email about it.
 
 
 
Receiving this notification after having initialized the Zimbra NG Backup module is probably a symptom of a storage issue, in the form of:
 
* Storage device unmounted.
 
* Storage device unavailable (e.g. networking issues for remote shares).
 
* Bad permissions on the Backup Path.
 
 
 
Should this happen, check your storage to make sure that it is functional and properly configured and that the Backup Path is accessible.
 
Once the Backup Path becomes available again there will be no need to re-initialize it, but running a SmartScan is highly suggested to ensure coherency between the live system and the backup.
 
 
 
If your old storage/backup path is compromised, configure a new Backup Path and initialize it to reprise the realtime backup.
