    There's no way to tell from your backup. You would only know by knowing how the original backup was taken, or by looking at the original backup script.

    Hi,

    May we know how you successfully restore from a unsafe backup ?

    It may be useful for the community in crisis time.

    Thanks

    Default The solution

    Raj, Please add to this.

    We had to install the matching version 6.08 ( I kept trying 6.12 )

    Then copied over that from the backup. ( we tried 3 different backups before one that worked )

    next step was to fix the permissions zmfixperms.

    Last step was to fix/replace the certs
    Single-Node Self-Signed Certificate

    1. Begin by generating a new Certificate Authority (CA).

    zmcertmgr createca -new

    2. Then generate a certificate signed by the CA that expires in 365 days.

    zmcertmgr createcrt -new -days 365

    3. Next deploy the certificate.

    zmcertmgr deploycrt self

    4. Next deploy the CA.

    zmcertmgr deployca

    5. To finish, verify the certificate was deployed to all the services.

    zmcertmgr viewdeployedcrt

    restarted and it is working now for the most part. I have a few quirks left to address but basic functionality has been restored.

    Thanks again to Raj and thanks to everyone that responded.

    Part 2 of the recovery

    After all this the mail server was running "ok" but zmcontrol status reported that mailbox and logger were not running even though they were.
    I figured out that the mysql root password did not match what zimbra was using so I fixed that and everything reports "A ok". more updates to come.

    I will try to upgrade to 7.01 to clean it up further. ( after I backup of course )

    I finished the upgrade to 7.01 without a hitch. Everything looks and seems clean. Wish me luck

    At the begining I was making backups of my zimbra while still running (what a bad idea) once the server crash and I made a new installation of zimbra coping the old mail folders directly to the new instalation I was sorprised when I ran the service and it restore the database and LDAP one by one, from that experience I stop every service before backing up zimbra
