    Question backup query

    we backup to an external disk which /opt/zimbra/backup is linked to.
    if the server hard disk fails we can restore from the external disk. Should we also copy the redologs folder to the external disk (is this possible while tomcat is active)?

    For open source users, it's best to bring the system down, and just copy /opt/zimbra

    Otherwise, on a restore, if you miss something, you'll end up with a broken system.
