    Default How to backup and restore account and mailbox?

    Dear all,

    I want to ask you, please help me. I want to know how to backup and restore account and mailbox in Zimbra 7? I have copied original folder /opt/zimbra before new installation of my zimbra server. Now I seek forward to restore my old account email user and their mailbox. Can please tell me the step that I have to do to restore my email accounts and their mailbox to new fresh install server? I really appreciate any help from you. Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Hi,

    What edition of Zimbra you using? Network or FOSS?

    For ZCS FOSS any version backup and restore mailbox.

    Login as zimbra user:
    su - zimbra

    You can backup a chosen mailbox from the source Zimbra server with:
    zmmailbox -z -m user@test.com getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/user_test.com.tar.gz


    And then restore it into the destination server with:

    zmmailbox -z -m user@test.com postRestURL “//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset” /tmp/user_test.com.tar.gz

    But it backup only mailbox content without user preferences.

    Did you look at any of the threads in the forums on how to do a backup/restore of a single account? If you're moving your ZCS to new hardware (especially if you're moving to 64bit) you need read the Zimbra Certified article on moving to new hardware (or again, read the forum articles on the topic).
