    Angry [SOLVED] Standard Backup Fails

    Hi,
    I recently switched to Standard backup from Auto-Group. Incremental backup seems running just fine; however, weekly full backup is not working. I've got a "missing account list" error. What weird is that if I did a full backup from GUI, it runs just fine.
    Just to make sure Zimbra backs up to the right folder, I edited the crontab and add zmbackup -f -a -t /path_to_backup/folder and received this error message: "invalid account email address". I did run the "zmprov gacf zimbraBackupTarget" and it showed the correct backup folder.
    What am I missing? Please help.
    Thanks,

    Just to make sure Zimbra backs up to the right folder, I edited the crontab and add zmbackup -f -a -t /path_to_backup/folder
    the right line of full backup may be like the following:

    Code:
    zmbackup -f -a all -t /path_to_backup/folder
    you have missed the 'all' argument after -a option.

    So, you can edit the crontab of zimbra user and modify the line to be like this:

    Code:
    0 1 * * 6 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f   -a all -t /path_to_backup/folder

    Thanks for responding. I added all to the zmbackup per your suggestion and it worked.
