    Default fsck on mailstore FS

    I have a partition used to store mailboxes that is in need of a FSCK

    I was planning to put all accounts with mailboxes in maintenance mode, stop "mailbox" unmount and run my filecheck.

    Some of my users have forwards set up to external email boxes, would these still be operational during the time that I am doing my maintenance ?

    In theory they should be okay ... Though for that type of work I would prefer to shutdown the whole of ZCS and let my backup MX queue the inbound emails. I presume you are taking a full backup before running the FSCK ?

    It's running virtualized so I was planning to make a snapshot before messing around with fsck

    Okay And I see you are running NE so perform a online backup aswell. Just performing a snapshop will still mean the services are running and if you restore you may encounter a issue.
