How long does the restoration take on clod standby server?
We have a zimbra NE 7.0.1 server with more than 100 users. I read this thread carefully, one real concern is that how long it will take for the cold standby server's restore process done. It seems to me that every time it does the restore on standby server, it will do the whole disaster recover procedure again.
I am thinking to work this way:
1. On live server, do weekly full backup, hourly incremental backup;
2. Rsync full backup to standby server weekly; And after rsync done, run the restoration;
3. Rsync incremental backup to standby server hourly; And after rsync, only
restore the incremental backup (might have errors with new created account, but this way it should be fast enough );
4. Once live server is down, startup the zimbra on standby server should be enough.
Does anybody else think it is doable solution?
I also noticed someone said to rsync "/opt/zimbra" whole directory with some mysql handling script to correct errors. I am afraid it will not work with zimbra next upgrade. So I prefer to use Zimbra native command if possible to implement my backup procedure.
