[SOLVED] Backup / Restore with tgz formatter

Postby Service » Thu Aug 27, 2009 5:39 pm

Hello,
I am using these 2 commands for migrating accounts from server 1 to server 2 (both in the same version) :
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com getRestURL “//?fmt=tgz” > /tmp/account.tgz

and
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com postRestURL “//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset” /tmp/account.tgz

But now I want to use the same method for a 'update' operation on the same server for a test from version 5.0.18 to 6RC1
But it seems that the tgz file resulting in the backup on version 5 in not compatible with tgz for version 6 ???
As I can't use imapsync, what other tool I can use ?
Thanks.
PS : sorry, but this post should be in the 'Migration' forum.

[SOLVED] Backup / Restore with tgz formatter

Can I just copy the 'store' folder ?
What will I loose if I use this trick ? I read that I may loose 'metadata', ok but what are metadata ?
With this trick, if think that the index is not copied too, is the index can be recreated ? what is it used for ?
And what about the database ? as between v5 et v6 schema as changed, I don't know how to reimport data from the database. Is it really important ?


Thanks.

Here is the ouput that the version 6 gave me for a restoration of a backup of the version 5.0.18 :
ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: POST failed, status=500 system failure: tgz formatter failure)

[quote user="mtanzer"]This is a workaround.[/QUOTE]A 'solution' in this case is what worked for the o/p, nobody said the original problem was solved.

I understand that it is a closed message, but it had not solution until this time.
I solved this issue replacing the & (ampersand symbol) with the equivalent to URLs: %26%.
When I tested the "&" in Zimbra 6 there was not problem, but when migrate to Zimbra 8 the problem appeared.
So in any message of this forum this solution doesnt appears and this is my contribution.
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com postRestURL “//?fmt=tgz%26%resolve=reset” /tmp/account.tgz

The correct syntax is at: https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Ajcody-Mig ... fter_Dates
This worked for me to export from an old Zimra 7 server.

Code: Select all

 zmmailbox -z -m user@`zmhostname` gru '/?fmt=tgz&query=after:"10/01/14" and before:"10/15/14"' > /tmp/filename.tgz

Return to “Migration”
