incremental backups not running - cron not initiating

Postby fyd » Tue Aug 23, 2011 6:12 am

Incremental backups are running each night with respect to the setting i have on my crontab. This is since my upgrade to 7.1.1 from 6.0.13. I coundn't find any details that says the upgrade broke it. I checked /var/log/cron and zmbackup command was initiated 'only' for deleting backups before 1 month and starting full backups. Not for incremental backups that should be run every night.
/opt/zimbra/redolog directory is filling up fine. there are files for each day under archive. Any thoughts on where to look and patch that can be done? Thanks in advance.

have you tried to use zmschedulebackup to verify/adjust the backup schedule?

Thanks for that, it seems some one played with crontab and didn't fix it. This is the doc that bdial referred to, explains zmschedulebackup. CLI zmschedulebackup Network Edition only - Zimbra :: Wiki
su - zimbra ; zmschedulebackup -q
that listed the settings in a neat manner.
