So, after recovering from a drive crash on top of a corrupted mirrorset, I'm left with a somewhat intact copy of the /opt/zimbra directory. Within the salvaged data, is a clean and mountable version of the Zimbra database files (/opt/zimbra/db/ - confirmed clean with table checks after mount) and a somewhat complete version of the store (/opt/zimbra/store/ - noticed a few corrupt files, but the majority is there).
I've run the restore as indicated in the wiki - including a re-install of the same version of ZCS over the top of the restored /opt/zimbra/ directory - this results in a somewhat broken install with what appears to be major LDAP problems.
So, time for plan Q . . .
I'm looking for any hints or tips drawn from the vast experience in the community, that may help me on the way to recovering user messages and address books to a fresh install of Zimbra.
There seems to be a number of articles here on recovery with just the /opt/zimbra/store/ directory (which I still haven't ruled out as a last resort), and the whole /opt/zimbra/ directory (which doesn't work in my case) . . . but it would seem that no one has attempted to (or at least posted about it within the forum) restore from the DB and the Store backups.
A few stats on the install:
- ZCS Version: 4.5.1 Open Source
- OS Version: CentOS 4.4
- System contains approximately 25 mail accounts over about 10 domains.
So, anyone up for the challenge? I can provide any additional information as needed.
Thank you in advance!
