I can successfully restore using a full backup of ldap and sessions. My problem is how to restore not only the full but subsequent incremental backups.
Step 5 To restore the LDAP, type zmrestoreldap -lb <latest_label>. I assume I can use the latest backup full or incremental. I tried both and it appears to restore the same ldap information.
At step 7, executing "zmrestoreoffline -sys -a all -c -br" returns
zmrestoreldap -lbs is able to see all the backups.
[zimbra@zimbra ldap]$ date; zmrestoreoffline -sys -a all -c -br ; date; Wed Feb 27 20:55:20 MST 2008
Redo log sequence has been reset from the backup
System tables and local configuration are restored.
Local config is restored to <zimbra_home>/conf/localconfig.xml.restored.
Make sure current volumes are correct using zmvolume command.

Where did I go wrong with my attempt to restore using full and incremental backups?
[zimbra@zimbra ldap]$ zmrestoreldap -lbs
