    Default Set default backup target for zmschedulebackup?

    I didn't see this in the NE administrator's guide, nor from a cursory search on here.

    But - on the Network Edition (3.01, RHEL), I can specify a target (using -t) for zmbackup, and that works fine.

    I have added the default backup schedule using zmschedulebackup -D

    But is there a way I can specify a target for the scheduled backups? I have a backup drive mounted as /backup, and have done full and incremental backups to that, but I want that also used as the target for scheduled backups. Or do I have to mount the backup drive to /opt/zimbra/backup ?

    I guess I should add, I see that I *could* do "crontab -e" and and tack on the "-t /backup", but there is an all caps warning, "ZIMBRASTART -- DO NOT EDIT ANYTHING BETWEEN THIS LINE AND ZIMBRAEND"

    So is there a way, apart from manually editing, to set the default target? Thank you!!!

    Default

    Seems like -t is an option we should add. Can you file that in bugzilla. For now you'll have to create a link to your backup dir or edit the crontab but be aware we will rewrite it on any other edits.
