    Default Zimbra Backup schedule and zmschedule usage

    Our Zimbra backup had failed due to insufficient storage space. We have recover backup by renaming accounts.xml.old to accounts.xml.

    1. Will Zimbra backup automatically purge this unsuccessful backup since it might not be indicated in the previous accounts.xml file? Or will cron be smart enough to purge them base on file creation date automatically?

    2. If we want to reduce the backup storage requirement by reducing 1 month retention to 14 days without affecting existing backup schedule, how can we replace just the deletion schedule portion? This option I tried does not work:

    zmschedulebackup -R d 14d 0 0 * * *

    3. Will the new backup schedule amendment be restored back to the default whenever we upgrade Zimbra?

    Pt 2 has been resolved. I need to quote the schedule for it to work:

    zmschedulebackup -R d 14d "0 0 * * *"

    Also, this will replace everything, not just delete in the 3rd line. So I will have to retype everything, even on those that I do not want to replace but to retain:

    zmschedulebackup -R f "0 1 * * 6" i "0 1 * * 0-5" d 14d "0 0 * * *"

    Pt 1 has been answered by Zimbra Support. We have to manually remove them from the backup tmp folder.
