    Default Nightly Full Backup Schedule

    Hello, I'd like to have my Zimbra server backup in-full every night, and keep backups for up to 7 days. Could someone show me the proper zmschedulebackup syntax? I'm a little confused by the documentation.
    Thanks.

    I just looked at the wiki, since I toughed this out without it. Some notes on the wiki:

    1. There's no mention of the "delete" schedule.
    2. There's no "real-world" example of a typical command. (i.e., no reference to the required quotes around the schedule)

    For better documentation, zmschedulebackup --help is (at this point) better documentation.

    Using the -R option to replace your schedule, you can specify all the schedules (delete, incremental and full) in the same command:

    Code:
    [zimbra@zimbra1 ~]$ zmschedulebackup -R \
    d 15d "0 12 * * 0" \
    f "0 1 * * 0" \
    i "0 1 * * 1-6"
    
    Schedule replaced
    
    Current Schedule:
    
            d 15d 0 12 * * 0
            f 0 1 * * 0
            i 0 1 * * 1-6
    Since there was no reference on the "d" (delete) schedule, you'll notice that it requires two parameters -- one for the age, and one for the crontab schedule. I hope this helps. It took me a handful of attempts before I figured this tool out. The --help option helped a lot more than either the admin guide or the wiki.

    Since you have some 'real world' experience you could add it to the wiki, it's editable by users.

    What kind of users? I looked for a way to edit that page already, and I don't see an edit tab, as I do in other wikis. I can click on "article" "discussion" "view source" "history" and "watch".

    Let me know where you hid the "edit" tab, and I'd gladly add some content.

    --Brian

    P.S. When I append "&action=edit" to the URL, I don't get any buttons either to preview, submit nor show changes. Thanks.

    You (probably) need to create an account, top right on the main page.
