    Default restore deleted account with zmrestore

    Hi,

    We're trying to restore an account that was deleted by mistake last week. However, we're getting an error message...

    [zimbra@otto ~]$ zmrestore --createAccount --account username@nu2m.de --prefix restore_
    Error occurred: system failure: createMailbox: must specify an account

    What are we doing wrong? Thanks.

    No, zmrestore is a NE feature (compare ZCS editions)

    I had found this in one of your prior threads:

    zimbra_vol=PUT_ZIMBRA_VOLNAME_HERE (=Not Aware) ?

    I have installed zimbra open source to its slandered location. Kindly help me to solve this problem. although my installation directory is /opt/zimbra and my logical volume name is /dev/sda3
    So it's time to setup your most recent backup on another machine and imapsync/get the calendars with REST etc.
    Or if you don't want to bring another box up, use zmmailbox addMessage or zmlmtpinject (also search for scripts to correct the dates so their not the time of restore)

    If you want to get going really fast, as I realize it's not always easy to bring another instance up and running: Create the account again, open up your backup and see this post to start getting some mail back: /forums/installation/12617-recover-data-mbox-folders.html#post64962

    Backups are one of those things everyone finds boring, doesn't want to pay for storage of, goan when they don't have an up-to-date one, etc, etc.
    But hot backups on NE are quite nice, and restoring to any point in time using the redologs is just so damn useful - and often that alone justifies the cost of NE when you have worried users breathing down your neck!
