    So we don't have to keep asking which version you're running, pPlease update your forum profile with the output of the following command (do not post the output in this thread):

    Code:
    zmcontrol -v

    What I suggest you do is read the Backup & Restore articles in the wiki and search the forums as there are several threads that have good backup & restore scripts in them. Try some of them and pick one that you're comfortable with and you should try a disaster recovery of your current system, do it as many times as it takes to get it right - the time to test a backup is before you need it not when a disaster strikes.

    When you say backup by tar do you mean bring zimbra service down and then tar /opt/zimbra and then start service ? If you dont bring the setrvice down db will not be consistent and backup is of no use.
