I have setup Zimbra so that it there is a backup server by using DRBD. The problem is that zimbra is trying to run on the backup machine. This is a problem since the primary machine is constantly updating the secondary. If Zimbra is running on the secondary machine while the primary machine is up, it can create all sorts of havoc.

Zimbra has been setup on CentOS 5 and I am using red hat enterprise linux 5. I have tried running "zmcontrol" stop and "/sbin/service zimbra stop" but it still seems to start up each morning around 2am, which is about the time we do backups. I checked crontab, there are commands there to start zimbra.

any help here would be great!
