    Default How to delete a Message volume?

    Appologies if this is in the wrong forum section; I need help
    I mounted an additional HDD as data and set a new Volume as “message2” to /data/zimbra during the process I made a mistake an now I can no longer delete it using Manage Volumes

    If I go to Manage Volumes in Zimbra Admin I see:
    index1 /opt/zimbra/index (current)
    message1 /opt/zimbra/store (current)
    message2 /data/zimbra
    If I select “message2” and press Delete it will remove it; however; once I press save I get:
    Server error encountered
    Message: system failure: deleting volume entry: 3 Error Code
    Service.FAILURE MethodeleteVolumeRequest Details:soap:Receiver



    How can I delete this volume?

    Update: I am still unable to delete this volume and even tried to remove it from the mysql table but there are other table references and hence I cannot delete that row…

    Anyone got any ideas or suggestions please?

    I was searching for something about message volume and stumbled in to your posting. I've never done this, but look at this
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...ry-volume.html
    Search for "UPDATE mboxgroupN.mail_item SET volume_id = X WHERE volume_id = Y;"

    Maybe that will give you a clue. I guess if there is by accident any message
    in message2 already (can you see if there is any data in there?), you'll have to move data from message2 to message1 and update the database with the new volume for those messages you moved from message2.

    However, if there is no message at all in message2, maybe try this command
    'zmvolume -d', see
    zmvolume
    Becareful though, maybe try 'zmvolume -dc' to see what you have first.

    Keep in mind that I've never done this, but I would probably try something like this if I'm in your situation.
