    Default How to Move Message Store and Index ...

    I want to move the store and index directories from their default location in /opt/zimbra to a different location.

    Here is what I did:

    1. Create New Directories
      Code:
      mkdir /mnt/data/zimbra/store
      mkdir /mnt/data/zimbra/index
      chown /mnt/data/zimbra/store zimbra:zimbra
      chown /mnt/data/zimbra/index zimbra:zimbra
    2. Update the Store and Index Location
      In the Zimbra admin console, I navigate to Home > Configure > Servers > mail.mydomain.com > Volumes. There I reassign the location of store1 and index1.


    The Problem:

    The problem is that the existing messages in the previous store and index locations do not move to the new location. Moreover, users cant load messages located in the old locations, instead they are met with the messages such as "Missing Blob for item 263."

    My Question:

    What is the right way to move the message store and index location? Moreover, how can I move /opt/zimbra/db and /opt/zimbra/log?

    How right I don`nt now. But you can change path db and log command
    su - zimbra
    zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_log_directory=newpath to log
    zimbra_db_directory is another parametr

    I tried your suggestion but it didn't seem to work. For example, below I attempt to relocate the store directory:

    Code:
    zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_store_directory=/mnt/data/zimbra/store
    Afterwards I tried both restarting the Zimbra server with zmcontrol restart as well as restarting the entire server with sudo shutdown -r now. After both restarts, the store directory didn't move.
