I've been searching the forums for a good best practice backup schedule for Zimbra.
I have not found any complete solution but bits and peaces here and there and this is what I would like to do.
1. Each day stop the Zimbra service and do a rsync of the Zimbra configuration (All except for /opt/zimbra/store and /opt/zimbra/backup) to another folder locally on the server. Then start Zimbra and move the backup folder to another server or use BackupPC to backup this folder once a day.
2. Use Zimbra backup to to a nightly backup. Full backup once a week on Saturday and incremental backups on workdays. Store backups locally on the server for 1 month.
3. Each night do a rsync backup of the /opt/zimbra/backup to another server for redundancy.
Here I'm a little bit stuck and need your suggestions:
4. I would like each month to move last full backup to offsite storage and store monthly backups for at least 6 months - 1 year there.
Pls. comment how this can be done in an effective way.
