    Default Hangs on enabling swap space

    Have set up two seperate test boxes. 1st Box with Network Trail on rhel(Centos). After I installed Zimbra and rebooted, the boot process hang
    at enabling swap space. After an hour or so I gave up waiting. Was able to ping the box and putty into it. (test box was amd 1200gh with 1gb ram. Couldn`t close the boot screen. Eventually (after serveral hours) received a logon screen.
    Centos booted fine after initial install it was only after installing zimbra that the boot process hung.

    2nd Test box was 2gh amd with 1gh ram. Installed fc4 plus zimbra open. FC4 installed and rebooted fine however after zimbra install this box also hung temporarily after 'enabling swap space' and took about 5-10 to boot to logon page.

    Formatted 1st box and installed fc4 and zimbra open and boot process was much quicker though still stalled after 'enabling swap space' (about 5 mins).

    Just like to let you know about the issue. Perhaps its the amd cpu,s ?

    Very weird .. We've got lots of AMD boxes so doubt that's the issue. Are they slow to start/boot before you install Zimbra? What if you disable zimbra on boot and just start it manually so you can monitor it.

    I think this is a bug I fixed recently - on startup, zimbra tries to read it's config, and there's some bad code (mine) that will basically hang forever trying to read it if the system's busy. I fixed that, I hope, and it should show up in the next release.

    (This is a hard bug to reproduce, since you have to reboot the server to make it happen. I think it's related to JVM initialization on startup being kinda slow)

    Hi Kevin

    They are reasonably quick to boot. I can try to start zimbra manually after reboot but that is not really acceptable. Will test and let you know.
