    Default Restore

    I deleted a user over the weekend and it turns out I need some mail off that account. What would be the best way of going about getting this back.

    Based on a prior thread I see you're 5.0.2_GA_1976.RHEL4_20080130204528 RHEL4 NETWORK edition. http://www.zimbra.com/forums/announc...html#post62754

    You can make use of: CLI zmrestore Network Edition only - Zimbra :: Wiki

    If you use -ca & -pre on the zmrestore command you can create a new account to hold the restore while not affecting the currently working account.

    CLI zmrestore restoreToTime Network Edition only - Zimbra :: Wiki

    zmrestore -s server.domain.com -a user@domain.com --restoreToTime 20080301164705 -lb full-2008xxxxxx -ca -pre restored_

    Then connect to that account in an IMAP client (set password on the restored account as necessary) search for and copy the said mails, or open up the web interface/view mail on the account and fwd them to the main account.

    Thanks, looks like I am a little screwed here as I have found another problem. Seems as our last backup was in the middle of last month. When I tried to fire it off manually I recieved the following error.

    Message:Error! Cannot write to target path /opt/zimbra/mail0/BACKUP!
    Error Code: CSFR_SVC_ERROR Method:
    ZaBackupXWizard.prototype.createPath

    I obviously need to get this fixed. Any ideas?

    Permissions on that path? (mail0 & on BACKUP)
    Are you mounting mail0 elsewhere? Does BACKUP exist? (createPath part of the message maybe?)

    I'm thinking of: Bug 13198 - Proper error message should show when backup target directory does not have proper rights to take backup

    Here is the permission to that directory and everything in it.

    [root@zimbra BACKUP]# ls -al /opt/zimbra/mail0/BACKUP/
    total 20
    drwxr-xr-x 4 zimbra zimbra 4096 Jan 6 18:06 .
    drwxr-xr-x 5 zimbra zimbra 4096 Jan 6 17:48 ..
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 zimbra zimbra 4040 Feb 13 00:20 accounts.xml
    drwxrwxr-x 36 zimbra zimbra 4096 Feb 13 01:00 sessions
    drwxrwxr-x 2 zimbra zimbra 4096 Feb 13 01:00 tmp

    No, we do not have mail0 mounted anywhere else.

    thanks
