    Default [SOLVED] zmbackup creates full and incremental backup simoultaneously

    Dear all,

    since this week zmbackup creates multiple backups at the same time. I assume it has sth to do with the date because the only change i did was to add another user on monday morning (21 accounts in total).

    But since this week i get sometimes (tuesday and friday morning) doubled E-Mail-Reports saying that the Backup was successful, but:
    - the first one is a report about the successful incremental backup (as expected)
    - the second one is a report about a successful full backup with "number of accounts: 1" (which is totally strange)

    the number of accounts in the expected mail also differs slightly (+-1 account)

    The default schedule looks like this:
    Code:
    # BACKUP BEGIN
    0 1 * * 6 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all   --mail-report
    0 1 * * 0-5 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -i  --mail-report
    0 0 * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -del 1m --mail-report
    # BACKUP END
    so it should only create a full backup on saturday morning 1:00 am. But since this week it has created a full backup for 1 user and a incremental backup for 20(tuesday) and 21 users (friday / this morning). i am getting confused.

    did anyone have the same problem when using the default schedule or a slightly different one for zmbackup?

    These additional mail reports weren't just reports, these additional backups also appear in the backup list in the admin interface.

    Hope someone can help me.
    Best regards
    Simon

    whenever you add a new user, zimbra will do a full backup for that user on the next backup run even if it's an incremental day. are you saying that it keeps doing it days after that?

    Well i will re-check it, because i didn't knew that after creation of an acount/ressource a full backup is made. Thanks for the advice.

    yeah it needs a full of the new user in order to do incrementals of it the next day(s).
