    Question Opensource backup Question.

    Why do I get these when I run a backup of zimbra. I shutdown zimbra and then run this command cp -r /opt/zimbra /folder/destination

    root@mail:~# cp -r /opt/zimbra /home/nick

    Try running the command as root.

    I thought these are sockets. What about using tar - this just ignores the sockets.

    ...
    tar: private/lmtp: socket ignored
    tar: private/anvil: socket ignored
    tar: private/scache: socket ignored
    tar: private/maildrop: socket ignored
    tar: private/old-cyrus: socket ignored
    tar: private/cyrus: socket ignored
    tar: private/uucp: socket ignored
    tar: private/ifmail: socket ignored
    tar: private/bsmtp: socket ignored
    tar: private/smtp-amavis: socket ignored
    ...

    Cheers
    Andre
