Managing ZCS Configuration : Managing Other Functions

Managing Other Functions
Zimlets
Zimlets are applications that enhance the user experience from the Zimbra Web Client. Some Zimlets are automatically deployed when ZCS is installed and you can add new Zimlets and manage existing Zimlets from the Zimlets Configuration page on the administration console.
To see a list of Zimlets that are deployed, click Zimlets in the Configuration Overview pane. The Content pane lists all the Zimlets that are enabled or disabled. You can upload and deploy new Zimlets. Zimlets are delivered as a zip file that includes all the files necessary to run the Zimlet.
You can manage the Zimlets by domain, and you can configure COSs and individual accounts to allow access to Zimlets.
See the Working with Zimlets chapter for information about Zimlets.
Admin Extensions
You can create custom modules to add to the Zimbra administration console user interface. You can use the administration console to easily upload and install your modules.
Note: Go to the Zimbra Wiki, Extending Admin UI for documentation about how to create an extended admin UI module.
Setting System-wide Signatures
You can create system-wide mandatory signatures. The signatures are added to every message sent out. These types of signatures can be used to set up company signatures, legal notices, and company disclaimers. The following attributes are used to enable this feature:
zimbraDomainMandatoryMailSignatureText. This creates the plain text version.
zimbraDomainMandatoryMailSignatureHTML. This creates the HTML version.
1.
:
zmprov mcf zimbraDomainMandatoryMailSignatureHTML "<html><body>some html text</body></html>”
2.
 
The global signature is not visible when an email is composed, but dispalys in the recipient’s email mesage.
 
Backing Up the System
Backing up the mailbox server on a regular basis can help you quickly restore your email service if there is an unexpected crash. You should include backing up the ZCS server in your system-wide backup process. Only full backups of the ZCS data can be created.
Before backing up the ZCS data, all servers must be stopped. To stop the servers, use the CLI command, zmcontrol stop. After the backup is complete, to restart the servers, use zmcontrol start. See Appendix A, for more information about these command.
To restore the ZCS data, you must delete the existing data and then restore the backup files. The servers must be stopped before restoring the data.
