    Default RAM upgrade problem in Zimbra Server

    We have increased our Zimbra mail server RAM size from 4 GB to 8GB. But while run the "free" command to check the RAM size, it shows only 4 GB. So we have configured the OS kernel , then we can see the RAM size in free command as 8 GB. But now our Zimbra mail server service mailbox is not started.

    Actually what is the procedure to increase the RAM size for Zimbra server.???

    We gone thr the forum :

    [SOLVED] Zimbra mail box not working (zmmailboxdctl is not running)

    But we are in 32 bit only, Kindly advice us to move forward... Need to start mailbox service..

    Thanks..

    You'll have problems with your set-up, I'd suggest you upgrade to a 64bit O/S - read the following: 32 bit OS and 4GB memory limit

    No, there isn't - individual applications are limited to 4GB address space.

    You've given no information that would help anyone to advise you on a solution. You should look in the log files for any errors and search the forums for the answer?

    Just an idle question but why have you upgraded the Zimbra server to more than 8GB when it's still a 32bit system - you would be far better upgrading to a 64bit system (as the 32bit Zimbra is being phased out).
