    It isn't causing you a problem, the problem is caused by your lack of RAM - we specifically state the requirements for Zimbra and you're way below it. If you get it running on a specific version with less RAM there is no guarantee that future upgrades will still run with the amount same RAM. There are techniques for reducing the RAM used by zimbra (search the wiki or forums for details) but you'll either lose functionality or may have problems.

    Turning off IMAP/POP didn't help. It looks like services started shutting down at 4:14am. The only service still running is the logger service. Wierd.

    I am including a new batch of logs.

    Phoenix, I saw your reply after I had submitted mine. I will bump the VM up to 2GB of RAM and see what happens. I will keep the thread posted. Also, I will re-enable IMAP/POP.

    OK, see how you get on with the extra RAM. You mentioned earlier that it was running fine for a while - how long was that and did you do any system updates or have any failure of the VM when this problem occurred?
    Regards

    This system used to run on physical hardware with only 512MB of RAM. I then moved restored it from backup onto the VM that is running Ubuntu 6.06.1. The old server was running Ubuntu 7.04. Since I was moving to a VM I wanted to take the opportunity to get Zimbra back onto a supported OS. I followed the restore instructions that I gleaned from the forums and all appeared to be working on the VM. One other item I was running 4.5.9 on the physical hardware and after I restore the 4.5.9 version on the VM I upgraded to 4.5.10.

    Next oddity....I went to shut Zimbra down to re-enable POP/IMAP and at the mailbox shutdown it is asking me for a password. I have tried all the passwords I know and it is still prompting me. I have looked in the logs and can find what is causing the password prompt. Any ideas?

    When's the last time you ran a disc check on this server?

    If recently, then try a software install:
    ./install.sh -s

    This is a new VM instance, so the virtual disk should be fine. I can check it though. On another note, with 2GB of RAM allocated, Zimbra still crashed.

    I am just trying to understand your thought process on disabling SMP. What affect would that have on a single processor VM? Just curious.
