    Default problem in making backup server

    Hello All,
    I was making backup server for my production zimbra server with the help of

    Scripts to sync to a remote Zimbra backup machine - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I installed a new server for backup and given name and my original server name is newly server was working fine.
    I go through all the steps given in above link and export my LDAP to a file e.g. on my production server.

    openldap/sbin/slapcat -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf -b "" -l /tmp/zimbra-ldap.ldif
    After that I import the data in newly installed server with below commands.
    rm -f openldap-data/*
    openldap/sbin/slapadd -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf -b "" -l /tmp/zimbra-ldap.ldif
    Now when I start the zimbra server I got LDAP error e.g.

    zimbra@backup:~/bin> zmcontrol start
            Starting ldap...Done.
    Failed to start slapd.  Attempting debug start to determine error.
    backend_startup_one: bi_db_open failed! (-1)
    where is the problem??
