    Default mta restart freeze after kernel upgrade?

    Guys,

    I upgraded my kernel (Debian) from 2.6.8 to 2.6.18 today. Everything went smoothly, and appeared operational. However, Zimbra wouldn't start properly, and if I tried a zmcontrol stop it would freeze when trying to execute /opt/zimbra/bin/postfix stop. Not only would the process seemingly freeze...my ssh session would freeze as well.

    I even tried to reinstall via an upgrade, to no avail. Same problem.

    Dropped back to 2.6.8 again, and everything is good.

    Anyone know what might have been happening here? Has anyone has this experience?

    Thanks!

    After you upgrade the kernel, try to reinstall using
    ./install.sh -s

    There may be a permissions issue, or a packaging issue.

    I did try to reinstall with just ./install.sh...didn't fix anything. Does -s do anything that would make a significant difference?

    Thanks!

    Hmm-
    No that should do it as well. . . .

    Let's try this
    su -zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    ps auxx | grep zimbra

    Kill any left over processes.

    zmcontrol start
    if it freezes, the ctrl-c
    and post
    ps auxx | grep zimbra

    post that.

    And right there is where it freezes ;-). Only way to stop it is reboot the box.

    Whacky Debian.

    Are you on NE? If so, I'd say do a backup, wipe zimbra, update kernel, and restore.

    If not, then I think you're stuck.

    I'm not. I run this server for my home use and a few friends/family.

    Not sure what you mean by stuck? What is different from open source and NE editions that would make me "stuck"?

    Thanks guys.

    NE Makes backing up easier. OSS doesn't have that functionality. You can zip the file, but something tells me that's not gonna fix the issue.

    Try to do a google search on debian and postfix.
