    Default [SOLVED] How-To rename a backup sessoin ?

    How can I rename a backup session to show the single account i've backed up in the name of the backup session?

    For long-term storage of removed accounts, i make a backup of the account (/opt/zimbra/backup/daily) prior deleting the account and move this backup into a different directory (/opt/zimbra/backup/archive) to keep it save from the default cleanup.

    When I browse now the directory /opt/zimbra/backup/archive in the admin console, I see the sessions, as long as the directories have their original name full-2009...
    When I rename the session-directory to username-2009... the backup is not longer shown in the admin console

    How can I rename these backups to show a different name then full-...?
    Code:
                         <\***/>

    Backups aren't guaranteed to work in future versions of ZCS.

    It's probably safer (and smaller) to save exports instead. zmmailbox -z -m foo@example.com getresturl -o /archive/foo.tgz '//?fmt=tgz'

    All or portions of those can be re-imported into an empty account via postresturl or the Preferences pane of either ZWC or Zimbra Desktop.
