    Default [SOLVED] Mailbox restore restores to the wrong date

    Dear Zimbra Admins/Developers!

    I have a problem with restoring a mailbox. I'm using the following:

    Zimbra version--> 5.0.9_GA_2533.UBUNTU6.NETWORK 14. Aug 2008
    Ubuntu version--> 2.6.15-51-server

    Problem:

    The problem is that when I want to restore the mailbox to the date 23 September 08 the mails start by the date 25 September and contains mails up to today. Of course they could be dropping in (the ones from today) but the main problem is that it doesn't even restore up to the point of the 23rd but after it till today. I have a full backup of the 22nd and incrementals after that. What can I try to test the restores ? I have checked the dates on the unix system and they are accurate. My feeling tells me that for some reason Zimbra is getting the wrong sessions. I am using the admin interface to restore as I have the ZCS Edition. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    Silvio

    That's bug Bug 15320 - zmrestore using restoreToTime option restores data after the specified time

    The correct method is to use -lb to specify a full to work from via CLI/SOAP/Java, as the admin console doesn't have a fix for this behavior yet.
    See: CLI zmrestore restoreToTime Network Edition only - Zimbra :: Wiki

    For fixing the admin console: Bug 33135 - unable to restore to point in time/incremental
    To make it less forgiving or change behavior: Bug 28320 - zmrestore -restoreToTime should fail if no backup label is passed.

    Ah ok good to know, thank you. I thought the system is a bit messed up

    I found another workaround for this. What I did is go into the accounts.xml and change the fullbackupdate to what it was. That did it for me this time
