    Default Recover Data from Crashed Server

    I have another related post under installation. If I cannot get server back up, which looks likely at this point, can I restore mailboxes from a non functioning server it I have a backup of /opt/zimbra (store, indexes and data). I did the rsync HOT which is maybe why I can't start it. LDAP issues.

    Thanks

    No it's not, I moved it to the correct Administrators forum as the Installation forum is for questions about installing Zimbra.

    Perhaps you could give us some idea of what you did to 'restore' your original server as it's not exactly clear to me what you did. A 'hot' rsync is not guaranteed to work as a backup procedure as the database can't be guaranteed to be consistent and you should always take a backup with ZCS stopped.

    Thanks Bill and yes, I did an rsync of the /opt/zimbra directory to another server while it was running... Yes, dumb idea!! I restores the entire directory (150 GB) and of course it failed... Am I toast ???

    Might you know of ANYONE who could help me fix this ?? I'm not expecting the work for free... I've run the Community version not because I am cheap but that it worked SO WELL there didn't seem to be a reason to go Network version...
