ho guys, i need your help.

i have a 2 server running zimbra opensource 1 do the mailbox and ldap and another mta antispam antivirus... now the problem is that when i run the perl backup script , the procedure stops zimbra mailbox server, causing the mta server to shut down zmconfigd, antivirus and antispam.

can you suggest me how i can integrate in the perl script the restart of mta from the mailbox server?

host-equiv and zmcontrol restart?
