    Default Desparate! Machine crashed Zimbra won't restart

    I am running Zimbra on a Mac. Everything has been great. But the machine unexpectantly shutdown. now Zimbra won't restart. I type in zmcontrol start, it returns my hostname then command prompt. no starting anything. So a while ago I had a problem, and i found that if i reinstalled, it fixed the problem. This is what I'm getting when that happens.

    Setting defaults from ldap...ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException

    Can anyone please help me?

    So, you are attempting to reinstall?
    Did you run the installer or the script?
    Did you make a backup?

    The error is that the system can't communicate with LDAP.
    Can you verify that ldap is started?
    su - zimbra
    ldap status

    If it's not starting, let see why
    su - zimbra
    sh -x ldap start
