I noticed after setting up backups with the default schedule using, "zmschedulebackup -D " that no backups were occurring. I ran the zmbackup command as the zimbra user from the command line and noticed this error message:
zimbra$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all
Error occurred: authentication failed for zimbra
The following shows up in /opt/zimbra/log/audit.log :
2006-08-15 13:53:50,032 INFO [http-7071-Processor49] [ip=127.0.0.1;] security - cmd=AdminAuth; account=zimbra;
2006-08-15 13:53:50,034 WARN [http-7071-Processor49] [ip=127.0.0.1;] security - cmd=AdminAuth; account=zimbra; error=authentication failed for zimbra;
It appears the zimbrabackup java component is generating the message. This is Zimbra NE 3.1.4 on Mac OSX 10.4 on PowerPC.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
