Normally, before configure any thing on Zimbra mail server, I take a snap shot. Full backup is carried out at weekend.

How do you backup VM with RDM (virtual & physical mapping)?
Would it be able to backup to a NFS share?

Hi umarzuki,
I am using VMFS and have never tried RDM.

Are you using hyper-v core or hyper-v on a full server install? If on core I don't know..if on full server install just use windows backup. That's what i've done for quite some time.

If you read through the main Zimbra website, the wiki or even these forums (the thread in which you've posted already mentions some of them) you'd already know the answer to that. You can purchase Zimbra NE, ZeXtras (from the Zextras Website), ZeXtras NG from Zimbra or even roll-your-own backups (for free) from the ZCS Wiki (or forums).

Guys, for those who use the rsync backup strategy (/opt/zimbra): How do you restore a specific account from there?

Another question is, could you clone a zimbra mailbox server using this strategy? I mean, is it possible to clone an empty mailbox server and add it to the cluster? Any suggestions about what to do to keep zimbra mailbox servers in the same version? It seems every time I create a new mailbox server it updates automaticaly to the newest packages.
