    Default Error when doing Disaster Recovery

    I've done everything by the book when doing this. When i got to the point to start "zmrestoreoffline -sys -a all -c -br" i get the following error:

    Error occurred: Unable to process backup files of version 5.2; expected 5.3 (this is backup file format version, not ZCS version)

    What does this mean? Using RHEL 4 and Zimbra 4.5

    Is the build of zimbra you are using the exact same one as was used on the server for which the backup was originally created?

    The 5.3/5.2 thing probably indicates the version of the backup utility that was used to create the zimbra backup, if zimbra versions these seperately from the top level version.

    Default same issue, downgrade required?

    Do you then need to downgrade zimbra to restore backup files created in earlier versions?

    thanks.

    Yes.
    We have different backup schemas, so if you go to restore, the system will foo, because it's like:
    "That backup version hasn't been created yet!"

    that backup version had existed - this guy is trying to restore version 5.2 on a 5.3 backup version server.

    to be clear, I need a whole seperate installation to restore for each point release of Zimbra? Just so I know how to plan for older restores when required.

    thanks.
