How to know if backup completed?

Postby dipeshmehta » Fri Sep 11, 2015 3:39 am


I am writing a small bash script which shall copy zimbra's backup to external storage.  For this script to run, I want to know, if zmbackup puts any ~.lock etc anywhere (or something like that) by which my script can know whether backup is running or completed.


Release 8.0.9.GA.6191.UBUNTU14.64 UBUNTU14_64 NETWORK edition

I would recommend using the zmbackupquery command as part of your scripts to check if the backup is completed.
