We recentlly upgraded our mail server with a Drobo for mail storage and after a restart, we lose all past messages. Checking around, I found that there are two volumes listed in /Volumes - "Drobo" and "Drobo 1".
It seems that Zimbra starts up immediately after a restart and the Drobo takes up to 25-30 seconds to be mounted due to its firmware/software. Since it is missing at Zimbra's startup time, I think Zimbra is creating the missing volume and disrupting the mounting of the true message store.
Is this possible? Can I delay Zimbras startup until all volumes are mounted or am I best off just changing the store location to an internal drive that mounts immediately?
