    Default Safe to delete old redo log files?

    Is it safe to delete redo log files (with seq numbers) that are dated last year? I'd like to clear out some space on the server.

    Any other items I should purge on a regular basis?

    TIA

    Do you not run incremental backups? (which would clean up the redologs)

    Yes - I mis-stated the directory... they were in a subdirectory named for an earlier Zimbra version (4.5.1, I think).

    Speaking of versions (if you are on 4.5.4 SUSEES9 Network Edition) ZCS 5.0GA NE Has Been Released!
    However as you're on SUSEES9 you will need to see /products/downloads_previous.html to get 4.5.10 then keep an eye on /products/sunset_binaries.html for you actual switch to 5.0

    Please don't forget a zmbackup, disk image, or even a rsync:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    exit
    su root (if not already at this point)
    ps aux | grep zimbra (kill -9 pid# of any remaining processes)
    mkdir /zcsbackup
    rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra/ /zcsbackup/zimbra
    mkdir /zcsbackuptars
    tar -zcvf /zcsbackuptars/backup.zimbra.5RC1.20071231.tar.gz -C /zcsbackup/zimbra .
    mv or scp /zcsbackuptars/backup.zimbra.5RC1.20071231.tar.gz /elsewhereAsDesired

    Have the old 4.5.4 installer handy in advance just in case you need to restore so you don't have to wait for it to download
