    Default Backup Question Re Upgrading NE edition to 5.0.16


    Quick question, is it ok if I just backup zimbra using the command "zmbackup -f -s -a all" command before the upgrade or should I copy the /opt/zimbra folder somewhere else?

    I'm using NE and I've never done an upgrade before. We used to always backup the /opt/zimbra folder with the FOSS version but that's difficult now that the zimbra folder is really huge.

    Thank you,

    A full backup should be fine but you can backup the /opt/zimbra directory structure if you want (you'll need to stop Zimbra to do that).
