I am working on putting together a script that will move the backups from /opt/zimbra/backup to another location as well as delete any backup sets that are older than 30 days. This is the first time I've worked with the Network Edition of Zimbra thus the first time working with the backup feature!
What do I need to copy over in order for the backup(s) to be valid? I know that for incremental backups to be valid I must retain the last full backup plus any incrementals in-between. However, in looking in /opt/zimbra/backup I see a bunch of stuff. If I simply copy what's inside the "sessions" folder, will that suffice?
Also, can I have my script execute the backup procedure? I'd like to have my script copy the new backup over to our alternate storage as soon as the process is finished.
Any guidance would be much appreciated!
We are running 8.0.2_GA_5569.NETWORK
