    Exclamation What about such backup method?

    Hi, everybody!

    I've just found this interesting FREE tool for online snapshots of disks and volums - R1Soft Linux Hot Copy - Free System Admin Tool*::*R1Soft

    I'm going to test in in a few days. Could be interesting solution for backup Zimbra Open Source version!

    According to the info in your link, it uses snapshots. That not likely to work with the Opensource version of Zimbra, you need to shutdown Zimbra to take a backup otherwise the files and databases are not guaranteed to be in a consistent state. Check the wiki ( and forums) for available backup scripts for Zimbra OS.

    At the same time, it's much easy to make backup with this utility instead of using scripts. Just stop zimbra daemons and then make snapshot.
