Hi there, I am in the next few weeks going to be migrating an old version of zimbra NE to the latest version.

I run the backup: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all -z on a regular basis, is this enough to be able to restore if there was ever a problem with the upgrade, or could something else be ran?

Also, I understand(I think) that it makes no difference if i run the backup while zimbra is running, or if stopped, but the only benefit of it being stopped is that emails will not arrive and users will not be able to send whilst stopped.

Any comments please?

The above backup normally takes approximately 8 hours to run from start to finish.
