    Default Full backup failed to run (NE)

    On Saturday our regularly scheduled full backup failed to run, leaving a "running" status message on the Administrator's Backups screen (web ui). It would not abort using the Abort button. I could not find any logged errors (and did not find the zmbackupquery/zmbackupabort commands until later) so I restarted Zimbra and all seemed well. I ran a full backup from the cli and it ran without a hitch. The two scheduled daily incrementals also ran fine early Sunday and Monday AM.

    I'd like to know what caused this failure and how to prevent it, but so far I have not found anything in the logs or on these forums to guide me. I wonder also if I have a bigger problem that I am unaware of.

    Any ideas or suggestions for proceeding would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bob Foster

    I have noticed messages like the following in the kern.logs. They occur sometimes but not everytime during the time the full backup happens. They only occur at that time as far as I can tell. It all may mean nothing of significance-- or not. The backup failure that occurred on Sept 6 is a singular event so far.
