    Default [SOLVED] Zimlets missing from Admin Console after restore

    Howdy--

    After a hardware failure, we just had to do a bare metal restore from backups. (Let me say that the Zimbra support engineer who helped out with this, Santosh Rao, was incredibly helpful--one of the best support experiences I've had. ) Anyway, after the restore, it seems that all of the administrative zimlets are missing from the Admin Console (Backups, HSM, Licensing, etc.)

    I have attempted to use `zmzimletctl deploy /opt/zimbra/zimlets-network/com_zimbra_backuprestore.zip`to restore the Backup/Restore zimlet. The command reports success, but the Zimlet does not appear in the Admin Console.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Jeremy.

    Default

    cd /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/webapps/service/zimlet/
    mv com_zimbra_backuprestore com_zimbrabackuprestorehold

    in one window: tail -f /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log
    in the other:
    su - zimbra
    cd zimlets-network
    zmzimletctl deploy com_zimbra_backuprestore.zip
    zmmailboxdctl restart

    Reason I want you to check the log is because there are two modes of deploy when using zmzimletctl. By default it works in async mode. The tool makes a soap request to the mailboxd, which will spawn a thread and finish deploying. The command line tool does not block while the whole operation is finished. The obvious side effect is that the CLI won't know the result of the deploy. The new message for this is "INFO: Deploy initiated. Check the servers mailbox.log for the status." The second mode of operation is with the -l (lima) flag. When using the this mode, CLI will wait and see the end of the deploy and report any error.

    Ok--totally my mistake: I did not issue the `zmmailboxdctl restart` after doing the deploy. As soon as I did that, the Backups tool was back. Interestingly, the wiki page[1] on deploying Zimlets doesn't note that you need to do the mailboxd restart.

    Thanks for the quick fix!

    Jeremy.
