    Default restore account to a point in time in the past

    (I'm starting a new thread, since I was confused about the problem when I posted yesterday)

    On July 12, we deleted an account that we now need to restore. We have the network editition, and we do full backups on the first of each month and incrementals every night.

    With "zmrestore -a user@nu2m.de -ra -rf", I am able to restore the account to the last full backup on July 1. However, when I try to restore the incrementals backups as well, I get an error and the restored account is deleted:

    Code:
    [zimbra@otto ~]$ zmrestore -a user@nu2m.de -ra
    Error occurred: no such account: xx442fxx-fd97-4d00-9641-xx182a8c80xx
    Is there a way I can restore the account to its state of the incremental backup on July 11, either with zmrestore or by extracting transactions from the redo logs myself?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Default Problem Solved

    In case anyone is wondering, this turned out to be the result of a bug that required the assistance of Zimbra Support to solve. Their response was prompt and professional, thanks!
