rsync backup error incremental incomplete

Postby xunilarr » Wed Jun 27, 2012 12:55 pm

Hi everyone, I have just followed the next processes to do the backup of my ZCS open source with rsync but when I restore the backup, It is incomplete.
1) I have the next accounts in my zimbra installation
u1@example.com

u2@example.com

u3@example.com
2) I stop my zimbra service
zmcontrol stop
3) I do the full backup with rsync in the local server
rsync -avHK --delete /opt/zimbra /dirx/zimbra.back/
4) I start zimbra
zmcontrol start
5) I create a new account
zmprov ca u4@example.com hello123

zmprov ca u5@example.com hello123
6) I stop Zimbra service
zmcontrol stop
7) I do an incremental backup with rsync
rsync -avHK --delete /opt/zimbra /dirx/zimbra.back/ ( this backup is faster more than the first backupp because this is incremental )
8) Now a I want to test my backup and delete the /opt/zimbra directory
rm -rf /opt/zimbra
9) I restore my backup
rsync -avHK /dirx/zimbra.back/zimbra /opt/
10) I restore permissions
chown -R zimbra.zimbra /opt/zimbra

/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperm
11) I start the zimbra service
zmcontrol start
12) I want to see my accounts to check if my last accounts created still are
zmprov -l gaa
But: In this point only the next accounts are showed

u1@example.com

u2@example.com

u3@example.com
There are not the u4 and u5 accounts previously created.
Somebody can help me with this problem, thanks.

When I do an rsync of Zimbra I usually use the options -avH --delete and I don't use -K.
I don't see why this should matter in your case, but perhaps it's worth a try.
