I am curious of what to do as far as backing up my Zimbra ZCS server I am testing for my company. I am running the open source edition so I am not able to do a hot backup of Zimbra, I would have to stop Zimbra.
The question I pose is simple, Zimbra is running on a VMware ESXi VM and we have the VCB and vStorage licenses, So I am able to backup VMs without the free version hackery.
Instead of worrying about backing up Zimbra on its own would backing up the VM say every other night be sufficient?
We don't have to adhere to any regulations of anything about mail archiving and if we lose a day of mail it would not be the end of the world.
