Zimbra: backup mailboxes script 150 150 Roderick Derks

Works on ZCS 7. Only active mailboxes from real active user accounts are backed up. Very simple, works great.

 

Create a cert file so scp can login to your backup server without asking the password. For instructions click here. Run the script as root, if you want to run it as zimbra remove the su – zimbra code including the ” that go with that.
