I think most people on the zebra list can't answer Emilda specific
questions. You might want to try an Emilda list, if such one exist.

zebraidx -c /path/to/your/zebra.cfg init
will definitely erase the zebra internal indexes.
Do I assume correctly from your excerpt that the Emilda records are
files on the filesystem ?? Then (you better check with Emilda people) it
should be sufficient to make a backup of
and thereafter clean this directory.

Why would you like to do that ??
Why not just start two different zebra servers on different ports ??
