    Question Zimbra Services Crashing

    Hi,

    I have setup a fresh install of Zimbra 5.0 Open Source on Ubuntu 6.06.
    The setup appears to be fine and i can send and receive emails without any issue.
    The problem i am seeing is that the Zimbra services are stopping, this seems to happen within an hour of either a server reboot or restarting the services manually.
    The output of a ZMcontrol status is:

    antispam Stopped
    zmmtaconfigctl is not running
    zmamavisdctl is not running
    antivirus Stopped
    zmmtaconfigctl is not running
    zmamavisdctl is not running
    imapproxy Stopped
    nginx is not running
    memcached is not running
    ldap Stopped
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    zmmtaconfigctl is not running
    mysql.server is not running
    zmmailboxdctl is not running
    mta Stopped
    zmmtaconfigctl is not running
    postfix is not running
    saslauthd is not running
    zmsaslauthdctl is not running
    snmp Stopped
    swatch is not running
    spell Stopped
    zmapachectl is not running
    stats Stopped


    The setup i have is Ubuntu 6.06 running in a VM (ESX 2.54)
    This is not something i have experienced in Ubuntu before and i am not really sure where to be looking in Zimbra.
    I also experienced this same issue in a test with 4.5
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    How much RAM is allocated to this VM?

    You'll need more than that, 1GB is the minimum for testing and 2GB is recommended. Please increase it and see what happens to the services after that.

    I'd also take a look at your logs to figure out why the services are being stopped. /var/log/zimbra.log and anything in /opt/zimbra/logs are good places to start.

    OK, we'd need the logs that Brian mentioned. You can add them to the thread as attachments.

    Attached is the Zimbra.log
    I had a look at the logs at opt/zimbra/log
    There is not a whole listed there that i think would help
