    Default Native replication/disaster recovery (WAN optimized)

    Hi

    The Zimbra documentation talks about support for 'Native replication/disaster recovery (WAN optimized)'.

    http://www.zimbra.com/about/what_is_...ut_zimbra.html
    http://www.zimbra.com/pdf/Zimbra%20A...20Overview.pdf
    http://www.zimbra.com/pdf/Zimbra%20F...Whitepaper.pdf

    My question is: Does this just refer to the RHEL GFS solution? There is no documentation on how to set this up other than a few sentences stating that this feature is available.

    OR is it just assumed that a custom setup of DRBD and Heartbeat will be used?

    Coming from a Lotus Domino background where mailbox replication is a key feature, it would be very competitive to have a similiar capability in Zimbra which is simple to implement.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Nothing like a catch all term-lol

    First you have the ldap replicas. /docs/ne/latest/multi_server_install/LDAP Replication.6.1.html

    For the network edition, clustering is provided for the mailstores using RHEL & RHCS +SAN & a fencing device.

    &
    /pdf/Zimbra Single Server Cluster Installation Guide.pdf

    -and when you need it: /pdf/Zimbra Multi Server Cluster Upgrade Guide.pdf

    Yep DRBD & Heartbeat is a common failover solution used by OS edition users, (I see you've already seen a bit about it from another of your posts - /forums/administrators/2845-zimbra-drbd.html) but it can certainly be used in NE setups as well. (Of course support is trained on RHCS so it may take them a little longer to help you out if your having trouble with it.

    Smile Thanks

    Thanks for affirming what I suspected

    The architecture required for RHCS is not an option at this stage, so we'll research the DRBD / Heartbeat option.

    Thanks for the reply too - hadn't seen this PDF before (something new to read):

    Cheers!

    Still CentOS 5?

    Add your version string output to your profile-
    zmcontrol -v
    or in the web-client search bar:
    Code:
    $set:get version
