I am a rather new user to Zimbra and am attempting to verify that the daily backup I am making will allow me to restore a system. I am following the OSE rotating backup script from this thread OSE rotating backup script and the backup is being produced. I have set up a test environment on another machine to try and perform the restore. I have been fooling around with this for awhile and am stumped as to why all the users are not being restored. I have 10 users on the system and only the first 5 are being restored. I am using Centos 4.5 and Zimbra 4.5.5 on both machines. The test machine only has 1GB of memory and I have assigned it a different IP address. I have configured the test machines DNS the same as the production machine with the exception of the different IP address of the test machine inserted in the config files in a split DNS format from the Wiki. When I do host command it resolves back to the internal IP address of the test machine. I used rsync to copy back my latest backup to /opt/zimbra. I then used ./install.sh and performed an upgrade. Attached is the log for this process. I did get a warning of port conflicts on 389 and two on 25 during the process which I accepted. The process continues on and at the end I can log on the the admin console but only have 5 of the 10 users. I have also changed permissions using /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms and chown -R zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra/st* thinking that might be the issue but still no joy. I have not tried sending emails because the mta service is down but at this point I am more concerned about the missing users.
I also am unsure if this has any bearing on the problem but on the initial install of Zimbra I had made the mistake of creating the domain as mailhost.example.com and not the domain of example.com. I just went through and added this domain as well as another domain that will be receiving mail on this server and then deleted the mailhost.example.com domain. I also corrected the email address of everyone that had a mailhost.example.com domain. I see in the logs that it is trying to create email addresses for mailhost.example.com for admin users. With this issue I am also concerned going forward and trying to upgrade to newer versions if this will present a problem.
Any insights would be appreciated.
