Rich, have you been using fdupes against a ZCS store on production system?
There's still nothing new against the RFE in bugzilla...
Bug 17057 – tool to consolidate duplicate e-mails
Successfully completed the fdupes process last night.
Ishutdown zimbra with "zmcontrol stop" as zimbra user and then ran fdupes.
exact command was:
fdupes -m -n -r -L /opt/zimbra/store > store.log
This created a record of every file it deduped by replacing with hard links.
End result was reclamation of about 184gb! And after restarting zimbra without issue everything is running smooth.
Thanks again for all your help.
