I will be running a 4.5.6 server, and want to know if the backup procedures listed in the wiki (talk about 3.0.6 or somethign) are still how I would want to handle the backup procedure..
eg, shutdown zimbra services...
tar mailfolder mount
start zimbra server again?
Is there a way to quickly create snapshots or something of the like? I've got a NAS with one client connecting to handle the messagestore itself and its pretty performant when it comes to storing messages etc. But when looking at backup, just the fact that there hundreds of thousands of files strewn about the message store leads to pretty timely copies/backups.
If I could have my nas create a snapshot, is there a way to rebuild indexes from a message store (assuming user database in ldap is up to date?) (I know there is a rebuild index at the mailbox level, but seems like this should be able to handled programatically, and perhaps for a list of mailboxes, or all mailboxes or something along those lines.)
Thank you kindly.
