    Default Automatic startup after boot

    I have an install of the Open Source Zimbra 3.1.

    The install went well, everything is working great, except, there's no startup script in /etc/init.d and I can't find anything that tells you how to start it automatically on boot up.

    I installed this on CentOS 4.3 using the RHEL .tgz and install script.

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    Is there anything in the install logs that indicate a problem? Did Zimbra start after the install? Have you disabled SELinux? Have you also stopped sendmail and stopped it from starting at boot?

    When you said it's 'working great', do you mean it is actually running and sending/receiving mail? Have you rebooted your system yet to see if Zimbra starts?
    Regards

    Nope, install history shows everything as okay

    Did Zimbra start after the install?
    Yup, and it starts manually after reboot with no issues.

    Have you disabled SELinux?
    disabled it during the CentOS install..

    Have you also stopped sendmail and stopped it from starting at boot?
    Yup.

    When you said it's 'working great', do you mean it is actually running and sending/receiving mail?
    Yes, everything works fine, it just doesn't autostart after bootup, I have to login and manually start it.

    Have you rebooted your system yet to see if Zimbra starts?
    Yes, it does not.

    In that case I can't imagine why it's not there. I run CentOS 4.3 without problems but you'll find a copy of the script in the /libexec directory.

    Nice, moved that to the /etc/inet.d, added it to the startup.. good to go.

    Thanks!

    Actually your post has just highlighted a slight problem on my system. While I was checking that script with the one I already had, I noticed that they're slightly different. The one in /libexec produces a startup log and mine doesn't - obviously not updated during my last upgrade. Anyway, it fixed now.

    Enjoy.
    Regards

    I have the same problem with CentOS 4.3, everything works perfectly expect that it doesn't start automatically... looked in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ and there is no script. What is the script called that is located in /libexec ?

    I'd have to triple that problem - my CentOS 4.3 didn't add the /etc/init.d/zimbra startup script either. Bugzilla anyone?
