reconstruct doing nothing

Hi all,


By now I've spent quite some time in trying to get the "reconstruct" command
working and it's close to driving me crazy, because it just wont go. 

Perhaps some background info:

I use two clustered Suse SLES 9 servers. For this the spool directory is
moved to an alternative location. This is reflected in /etc/imapd.conf:


configdirectory: /work/data/cyrus/var/lib/imap

partition-default: /work/data/cyrus/var/spool/imap

sievedir: /work/data/cyrus/var/lib/sieve



when I restore a folder and I do something like:


su cyrus "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -r user.testuser" the cyrus.* files
are not changed at all! I tried several things like logging in with the
cyrus user first and then issuing the command, or using "-rfx" but nothing
seems to work!!


What am I doing wrong?







Met Vriendelijke Groet,

Kind Regards,




Bart Coninckx
