    Default are power outtages bad for zimbra?

    I had a power outtage and my server went down. Is that bad for the database? Is there a way to check the health to make sure the database is ok?

    Power outages are bad for any file system but it depends on your definition of 'bad' and you really are advised to get a UPS if your server is important to you or your organisation. If there are any problems with the file system you'll usually see it at boot time when it does an fsck, you should also get a report from Zimbra is there's any problems with the database. So, I'd suggest for a start you look at the operating system log files for any boot time errors or fsck problems.

    Where are the log files located? I'm using CentOS 5.5.

    The server is up and now it appears that my MTA and STATS won't start.


    I'll check those logs later today.

    Thanks
