Re: Weird Zimbra Backup Behaviour

Sometimes the forum can be more helpful and responsive, especially when I'm seeking for verification from other administrators for their own Zimbra backup experience. Whether their full backup is taking just few minutes as well? Or is it because there is something wrong with mine. And to be honest, ...

Is it possible for Zimbra scheduled full backup of almost 3TB of data to take just 5 minutes to complete? How is this even possible?

Re: Zimbra Collaboration 8.7.x and Ubuntu OS update corrupts/removes Zimbra installation

I have given up on Ubuntu altogether and engage an expert to deploy a new VM on CentOS and do a rsync of the data over. He said CentOS is more stable than Ubuntu as they don't release new version so frequently. This mean we can upgrade Zimbra many times before we need to upgrade the OS.

What is require to set a new backup location?

Our current Zimbra backup is target on an existing NAS running NFS and it's running out of storage soon. So we brought a new NAS with higher capacity. Do we just amend the fstab file to point the Zimbra backup folder to the new NFS address? Will Zimbra get an error if it suddenly find the backup des...

Re: Is creating a partition necessary for LVM?

Thanks for replying. That article was almost 8 years ago. Is it still relevant? The purpose of having partitions is to help expand the storage easily when required in the future.

Meltdown and Spectre

Has anyone applied the patches to fix Meltdown and Spectre yet? Do you encounter any performance issue after the fix?

What could be the potential risk if we don't patch the OS for Zimbra? If they do not have ssh access, will they still be able to steal passwords etc?

Re: Zimbra Forum image attachment quota full?

Thanks for the tips! Was hoping Zimbra could make this more convenient for us by removing the quota.
