    Setting up backup path thru CLI

    Hi,
    How do I set up the backup patch for a FullScan thru the CLI ?
    Thanks,
    Perry

    Hello ppdeonet,

    you can set the backup path through the following command:

    Code:
    zxsuite backup setProperty ZxBackup_DestPath /your/new/path/
    the command must be executed as the Zimbra user and the mailboxd service must be running (as for all the setProperty commands)


    Have a nice day,
    Cine

    [EDIT: the --offline switch can be used to set this property when the mailboxd service is not running]

    Somehow this did not work.
    Therefore I unmounted the second sata disk and mounted it as /opt/zimbra/backup/zextras
    and started the FullScan.
    Thanks anyway.

    Was the mailboxd service running or did you run `zxsuite --offline backup setProperty ZxBackup_DestPath /your/new/path/` with the mailboxd service down?
