open source backup solution
We've learned from wiki site for backup solution for OpenSource edition.
Currently, we're using that one written in shell script.
and just curious the mechanism how it works. please correct me
if I'm wrong.
1. the script will do "rsync" during ZCS is still running, it will
"rsync" all the off-line files from /opt/zimbra/ to the backup directory.
2. and then shutdown ZCS, do the second "rsync" is to make sure
all the files which are probably locked during ZCS running can also
be copied to the backup directory. (these files could be mysql locked
table file, or some messages files which are not "rsync" during first
Are these correct ?
By the way, is it possible that "rsync" command cause problem
to mysql table during it's running ?
