    Default Users complaining about not being able to access server while in maintenance mode

    I have a backup script that runs at 10PM every night. Our users are complaining about not being able to login to the server for about 20 minutes.

    They get the message that the server is in maintenance mode when they try to access the Zimbra server via webmail.

    We are using the community edition (free).

    Is there a way to backup the server while it is online, or are we stuck with taking the server offline to do backups.

    Please see my backup perl script, which is attached.

    No, you need to take the server offline or it will not necessarily be in a consistent state if you have to do a restore/recovery. One alternative would be to backup individual mailboxes and I believe there's a script in the wiki (or forums) if you have a look.
