Find a Specific Backups
Each full or incremental backup is a backup session.
Each backup session is labeled with date and time. For example, the label full-20070712.155951.123 says this is a backup from July 12, 2007 at 3:59:51.123.
Note:
The times set in the session label are GMT, not the local time. GMT is used rather than local time to preserve visual ordering across daylight savings transitions.
The zmbackupquery command is used to find full backup sessions.
*
zmbackupquery -lb full-20070712.155951.123
*
zmbackupquery --type full --from “2007/01/01 12:45:45”
*
zmbackupquery --type full
*
zmbackupquery -a user1@example.com --type full --from “2007/07/05 12:01:15” --to “2007/07/12 17:01:45”
Note:
If a backup session is interrupted because the server crashes during backup (not aborted), the interrupted backup session is saved as a temporary session. The temporary backup session is put in <backup target>/sessions_tmp directory. You can use the rm command to delete the directory.
