Zimbra crashed yest night coz of a power failure which lasted longer than the backup could support.. I had a three day old backup.. Basically Ldap failed to start as the db got corrupt..
I tried restoring using db_recover and following steps in the older forum posts. But Things didn't work out. Finally I replaced the corrupt portion i.e. openldap folder from my older backup and changed permissions using zmfixperms and LDAP started finally !
I lost three accounts which I had created in the last three days. But not much harm done as these accounts weren't used so far.
I was wondering if there are inconsistencies coz of putting the older LDAP files in place of the new ones. Everythng seems to be fine. But I am skeptical.. Need some guidance to check if everything is fine ! What are the commands that can check my server and for issues which might have been caused by this crash..
I was also wondering if it is possible to sync data back from zdesktop to server in case the server realizes that the data on zimbra desktop is more recent..
I would appreciate if I could be guided... I guess a lot of people would face issues.. I have decided to backup my server daily atleast a couple of times. Saves me from a lot of unnecessary tension..
Any guidance and help is welcome !
