[SOLVED] Removing legacy backup schedule

Postby joho » Sun Jun 02, 2019 9:18 am

Having upgraded from Zimbra 8.7.11 to 8.8.12, I am getting "backup errors" , which I assume are related to the fact that the old backups are still running (via cron) in an environment that is now under the Zimbra NG modules control. I would have thought this instruction would be included in some Wiki, and perhaps it is and I've just not found it.

Should these three crontab entries be removed (zimbra user) after migrating to the NG backup?

#
# Backups
#
# BACKUP BEGIN
0 1 * * 6 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f -a all --mail-report
0 1 * * 0-5 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -i --mail-report
0 0 * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -del 1m --mail-report
# BACKUP END

This should take care of it.

Code: Select all

[zimbra@mail ~]$ zmschedulebackup -F

How odd. After the upgrade to 8.8.12, I disabled legacy backups, only to find them re-enabled after upgrading to 8.8.15. You'd think they would *stay* disabled since I disabled them after the 8.8.12 upgrade, and since the new backup method has been in use ever since :shock:
