    Default Backup options in admin console in 4.5.7

    Hi,

    I upgraded from 4.5.6 to 4.5.7 last week. When I now look at the admin console it seems that the backup section has disappeared. I can still use the command line tools to monitor things.

    Am I just looking in the wrong place or has it gone? As I remember (and according to the admin guide) it should be on the left hand side panel in the monitoring section.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    It is here for me.
    Is it possible that you upgraded to the Open Source Edition?

    I wondered that but I don't think so. zmcontrol -v reports Release 4.5.7_GA_1319.RHEL5_64_20070914192002 RHEL5_64 NETWORK edition, the backups are still running, zimbra mobile still works and the licence seems ok. The other odd thing I've noticed is that the Outlook Connector no longer appears in the downloads page (but can still be downloaded if you can figure out the location).

    I've attached a screenshot of the admin page - the backup link should appear on the left hand side, right?

    Have you still got the Network zimlets installed? If not re-install them and restart Zimbra.

    That did it - thanks. (although I would have expected the upgrade to take care of that sort of thing..?)

    It does but occasionally it doesn't.

    Just out of interest, what was the build details (file name) of the version you've upgraded from?
    Regards

    zcs-NETWORK-4.5.6_GA_1044.RHEL5_64.tgz

    I should probably start a separate thread for this, but...

    I think the original problem was that I'd put some additional schemas in the slapd.conf.in, in particular to use the nis and samba object classes.

    When the update script ran it replaced slapd.conf.in, which meant that slapd wouldn't start (as the ldap data relied on the additional definitions). This meant that the rest of the script produced all sorts of errors because the ldap server wasn't working.

    Is there a way around this? Backing up slapd.conf.in doesn't really solve the problem because it isn't possible to restore it before the rest of the script dies. At present it seems that adding any schemas to the ldap server is going to cause major problems when upgrading.
