LDAP and localconfig.xml

Having fun - the server died after a reboot.

Kept getting ldap errors.

zimbra.log

I rebooted and the server stopped working.

Looked at localconfig.xml and it was empty. How did that happen.

Look at /etc/hosts - the localhost line had changed to the internal IP address - edit it and reboot - changes back ?????

ran zmfixperms and bounced it - same problem.
Help ???
How do recover so I can at least migrate off to a new appliance (backup will not run (no LDAP))

I do have all of the mail in the Zimbra Desktops - but they will not sync - despite the password and the server name being the same.

I was hoping I could get a "reverse sync" to solve the backup problems.
Unfortunately I have been instructed to install two new test servers using two different products to see what we will replace zimbra with.
