    Easiest way is to add cron jobs to the zimbra user's crontab for the separate monthly and annual backups. Something like:

    Code:
    0 0 1 * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all -z -t /zimbra-compliance-backup/monthlies  --mail-report
    0 0 1 1 * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all -z -t /zimbra-compliance-backup/annuals  --mail-report
    Remember you'll need to add these again after a Zimbra upgrade. For automated pruning of these jobs, look in the zimbra user's crontab for the log pruning jobs which use "find" and "mtime" and then run rm to delete older files and directories. You can use those as examples.

    Hope that helps,
    Mark
