[quote user="cjm51213"]Hi Bill,
Of course I did. The threads in the forum are all requests for help, and I found none that answered my questions, and the Wiki article was overly complex and general talking about creating a dummy installation... Seems like it is not really this complicated. For example, can I periodically create a dd image on my disk and then do correct backups of the data in the index and the store (MySQL?) Is this sufficient? Then can I reconstruct a running zimbra from those pieces? Can I use rsync to keep the mail traffic current on a hot stand-by?
Thanks for the help,
You have to recognize that you didn't have give details about yours deployments.
Zimbra , as you surely know it's complex and require every bit backed up regarding.
No, you have to have cold backups to salvage and recover a running zimbra instance.
Of course, i'am refering about FOSS.
