UPDATE 03-17-2017: Zentyal 5.07 Core version also does not restore the Shared folders. See below.

******

Backup and Restore of Zentyal 5.0 is easy.  The Disaster Recovery is also easy but the users home shares are not working.

Backup and Restore of Zentyal 5.0:

To do the configuration backup (the data backup is later on this post), click on System/Configuration and place a Description for your backup.   I named mine as TestBackup.

Then click on BACKUP and when it’s done it says Backup Successful.

Now when you click on OK at the bottom is the Backup List and it should show the backup you just made.

You can either restore by clicking on the counter clockwise button or download it and then restore the backup.   This is mine downloaded tar file.

To backup the data file I used a scp command.   The default Shared Folder is in the /home/samba/shares. Using the root with ssh and I did this step to backup the ‘shares’ folders.

root@server#  
scp -r home/samba/shares jeff@192.168.2.60:/home/jeff/Desktop
jeff@192.168.2.60's password:

 

Disaster Recovery:

If you have to use a disaster recover you will need the downloaded configuration file and the data backup.

I did first restoring the configuration file in the System/Configuration.

Then restore the shared files.

root@server #
scp -r jeff@192.168.2.60:/home/jeff/Desktop/shares/ /home/samba/
jeff@192.168.2.60's password:

UPDATE: 03-17-2017.  The users can’t see their folder and the Shared folder.   Both their folder and Shared folder are missing the Security Permissions.
