    Default Incomplete full backup?

    Hi,

    When I check our full and incremental backup, I'm puzzled to find that the full backup only backup 76 accounts while incremental backup all our 146 accounts. Is there any reason why full backup is not "full" at all?

    FYI, we have recently migrated some accounts from Zimbra Opensource to Zimbra Network Version. Does this affect full backup?

    are you perhaps looking at a full that ran on a day you imported a bunch of accounts? zimbra will do a full backup the day accounts are added. so say on friday you only had 70 acounts and the full backup ran, it should've backed up 70 accounts. then on tuesday you add the other 76 accounts. zimbra will do both a full and incremental backup that night, but only a full for the new accounts

    We migrated on the 2 weeks ago on 27 Nov. On the 4th Dec, the full backup failed till to insufficient storage (cause by 100GB of log files generated by the migration script). We then trigger a full backup to run on the 5th. The full backup will still only backup new accounts instead of all? I will expect full to contain all accounts. How do we trigger a complete full backup?

    no, explicitely running a full should do every account. you're not doing grouped backup are you? look in the root cdrontab does the full backup command look like

    zmbackup -f -a all

    that is the command to do a full backup of all accounts
