    The backup script does a stop, LVM snapshot create, start and back-up using just created snapshot:
    Code:

    Check the ownership of the master.lock and /opt/zimbra/data/postfix directory.

    I discovered that sendmail was still running and sitting on the port that postfix watned.

    Stopped sendmail and restarted Zimbra.
