    Default [SOLVED] changing backup location seemed to cancel daily backup

    Hello,

    On my zimbra 6.10 NE, I changed 10 days ago the mail backup location from the zimbra install partition to another partition. At that time I manually triggered a backup, which worked correctly.

    However, since that day, my daily backup just seemed not to work anymore.

    After a quick inspection, as the zimbra user, launching the following commands fails:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -i
    Error occurred: Invalid backup target: Backup target /removabledd/zimbra-backup does not exist

    however, of course:
    ls /removabledd/zimbra-backup -lrtd
    drwxr-xr-x 4 zimbra zimbra 4096 2011-03-26 18:36 /removabledd/zimbra-backup


    There are clearly at least two issues:
    - the test of existence of the backdir seems to fail erroneously
    - when the backup fails, not warnign is oissued (since backups are triggered form a cron, with no email adress indicated in the cron for reporting warning...).

    How could I make the backup working again from zimbra'cron ?

    In fact the issue was due to a leading blank in the path of the backup as input in zimbra backup admin GUI.
    a bug case has been filled by zimbra support: Bug 58882 – Extra space on zimbraBackupTarget will break zmbackup
