I have been running a server in a grade school environment for almost a year now without a problem until yesterday. I had a power supply failure and a wake up call. Server was down for about 8 hours until I could get to it to repair it. SO, I could use some suggestions or directions as to a possible setup to help me out. Here is what i have to work with.
I have a home zimbra setup ms2.family.net that receives email for my family and serves as a test box for all upgrades. I have a server at the school ms1.school.org that serves about 40 accounts. Both servers are connected to the net with a static ip address thru DSL.
I would like to be able to setup my home server to be my backup for the school but still be able to collect emails for my home. How can I create a domain on my home server, copy all of the accounts from the school and have it collect when the school goes offline? My other question would then be, How do I get the 2 servers synced back up after he school comes back up online?
My solution right now is to have all of the emails go to a catch-all which forwards to my home email. I then filter and forward from there. This might be an easy setup or it could be way over my head. Could anyone direct me to some reading that might help?
ps. did an upgrade on both servers to the latest 5.06 without a glitch.
