    Default Uninstall on Mac OS X Server 10.4.4

    Hi,

    As I won't be able to run Zimbra on my server (because of OpenDirectory that I need to keep running), I would like to uninstall Zimbra.

    So far, I found out that I need to remove everything in:
    - /opt/zimbra
    - /Library/Receipts/zimbra-*

    Unfortunately postfix do not run anymore now. I tried with a reboot too.
    I found a post on the forum explaining some iptables stuff, but Mac OS X does not use iptables... So I can't apply the "hack".

    I'm really anxious wondering how to solve this issue as this server is hosting lots a virtual domains and I need to recover asap.

    Any hint?


    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Jérôme.

    Default re-enabling postfix on the mac

    Move the contents of /System/Library/LaunchDaemons.disabled back into /System/Library/LaunchDaemons. Not sure if a reboot is required.

    Default Does Zimbra install any LaunchDaemons?

    there was a thread about installing a StartupItem do get zimbra going -

    is there a launchd way to do it better/more elegantly?

    I'm sure there is, but I'll have to get better acquainted with the launchd docs.

    I've filed 5974 on this.

    I did, and now I do have postfix running and accepting connections on port 25, but probably running in a weird state because it does not answer anything on port 25...

    As I tried an old version of Zimbra (which I did not uninstall properly) and then installed a newer one, I perhaps have a bad file in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons.disabled?

    Could someone running MacOS X Server 10.4.4 sent it to me just to make sure, please?

    Otherwise any other issue I might have missed?

    Thanks,
    Jérôme.

    Default mac uninstall

    We don't put anything in launchdaemons.disabled that we don't find in launchdaeemons, so I doubt the file is corrupted.

    What do you mean when you say that postfix is accepting connections on port 25, but it's not accepting connections. That makes no sense.

    I tried to explain that I can do a telnet on port 25 but issuing commands do nothing (for example the server is supposed to answer something to a HELO command but nothing happens in my case). The process are running, postfix is listening on the port (for a while, the port seems to close after a while) but the protocol itself is not handled...

    Can the file in launchdaemons.disabled be wrong after many installations (without proper uninstall)?

    Check the logs to see if postfix is logging errors.

    The file in launchdaemons.disabled is not modified by zimbra in any way, so it shoudn't be corrupt.

    Unfortunately, there is no log produced when I look in Server Admin/Mail/Logs/SMTP log, I do have nothing since I installed Zimbra...

    This is why I'm clueless regarding what's happening

    Unless you've removed the zimbra lines from /etc/syslog.conf, the smtp errors are probably still going to /var/log/zimbra.log. (If you update syslog.conf, you'll have to restart syslog before the changes take effect)
