Hi, I have scheduled a full daily backup and then have my backup server rsync the /opt/zimbra/backup directory later each night.

But... I cannot make a complete off-site backup due to locked files, specifically session.dat. How can I release the /opt/zimbra/backup directory, short of stopping all of the services? (Why the heck are any files remaining locked in the /opt/zimbra/backup directory? That makes no sense to me. After the backup is done, it should be done.)

I'm using Zimbra Network Edition v3.1.4 under Red Hat EL 4. (I haven't gone live yet. Will v4.0.0 backup/restore be easier/well-behaved?)
