Hi

Just spent 14 hrs trying to get the recommended route for backup restore to work and failed...

Using 3.1.1 -394 ZCS stopped services. Checked all stopped. Copied by rsync the entire opt/zimbra directory to another server.

Installed new server with same hostname and IP, same OS (FC4) fully updated and installed vanilla ZCS. Stopped services and moved required /opt/zimbra into positon and ran install.sh again. Also tried resetting permissions on opt/zimbra with zmfixperms but results were the same.

System comes up, all accounts in place, all mail there, calendar etc. However try to send an email and I get dialogue box with:

Any clues as to why? Orginal system still works fine so back to that for now but it concerns me that there is no way to back up a working system.

Happy to send attch logs as needed but not sure which!
