    Default zmbackup: authentication failed

    I noticed after setting up backups with the default schedule using, "zmschedulebackup -D " that no backups were occurring. I ran the zmbackup command as the zimbra user from the command line and noticed this error message:

    zimbra$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all
    Error occurred: authentication failed for zimbra

    The following shows up in /opt/zimbra/log/audit.log :
    2006-08-15 13:53:50,032 INFO [http-7071-Processor49] [ip=;] security - cmd=AdminAuth; account=zimbra;
    2006-08-15 13:53:50,034 WARN [http-7071-Processor49] [ip=;] security - cmd=AdminAuth; account=zimbra; error=authentication failed for zimbra;

    It appears the zimbrabackup java component is generating the message. This is Zimbra NE 3.1.4 on Mac OSX 10.4 on PowerPC.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Somehow your admin password is not set right. Since this is a network feature you may want to just email and they can walk you through that.

    Default ZimbraBackup

    Can you tell me where ZimbraBackup package is in the Zimbra source?

    Good luck in everything!

    It's a Network Edition component.

    Some FOSS backup methods are listed here: Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki
