    Exclamation [SOLVED] URGENT! zmSetServerName killed Production Server?

    Ok, I've really screwed up here. I was trying to setup a Test server to play with backup/restores, and I ran ZmSetServerName on my test server while my Live server was up. I believe it did something bad. It was working at that moment, but then I issued the commands

    zmprov ms mail.domain.com zimbraLmtpAdvertisedName testmail.domain.com
    zmprov ms mail.domain.com zimbraServiceHostname testmail.domain.com

    immediately, things went bad. I tried to fix it with

    zmprov ms testmail.domain.com zimbraLmtpAdvertisedName mail.domain.com
    zmprov ms testmail.domain.com zimbraServiceHostname mail.domain.com

    and zmSetServerName mail.domain.com, but I can't connect still. webmail won't even load...it just sits there with the loading screen. Please help!

    Default

    Ok. I only tried running those commands on my test server, since that's where I had issued them originally. I dumped my production ldap and searched for my test server hostname. I found those two entries at the bottom. zimbraLmtpAdvertisedName and zimbraServiceHostname both set to testmail.domain.com. I immediately issued

    zmprov ms testmail.domain.com zimbraLmtpAdvertisedName mail.domain.com

    but it said testmail.domain.com didn't exist. So I did

    zmprov ms mail.domain.com zimbraLmtpAdvertisedName mail.domain.com

    for both settings, and that brought everything back up. Whew!
