    Default Network Ed Backup: COS and Distribution Lists?

    How do I backup COS and Distribution Lists using Network Edition 4.5.0? I successfully restored the "system", "ldap", and "accounts" via the CLI tools (zmrestore & zmrestoreldap). However, the COS (and possibly other system attributes) and Distribution Lists I had set up did not follow.

    After running a full backup from the Web-based admin page on my original server, I copied the /opt/zimbra/backup folder to a new, fresh install of Network 4.5.

    Thanks.

    Those should be stored in LDAP

    Any indication on why they wern't transferred?

    Does a separate backup routine need to be run for LDAP apart from the Admin Web Widget (for accounts?)?

    Latest sessions backups were:

    I tried another round of flatten (run install.sh and saying N to upgrade), backup the live server via web widget, transfer whole /opt/zimbra/backup directory with rsync, zmrestoreldap to the latest version (which was the scheduled one, not any web widget one), zmcontrol start, zmrestore all accounts to the latest version (which was the one I just demanded via web widget).

    No COS, no distribution lists.

    As long as I'm not losing anything subtle, I can manually recreate the COS and distribution lists, as annoying as that is.

    Edit: Should I start a bug on the bug tracker?
