    Default [SOLVED] zmcontrol not working


    When I type the following command:

    zmcontrol stop

    I get this output:

    Stopping stats...Terminated

    Yet, if I immediately type:

    zmcontrol status

    I get this output:

    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    stats Running

    I'm trying to upgrade to the latest version (5.0.14). I am on version 5.0.10. I think that the zmcontrol not being about to stop (and start) the zimbra installation is causing problems during the upgrade.

    I also tried to look at the output of

    zmprov gac

    However, this give alot of output. And, I think some entries might be missing, but I'm not sure how that might have happened.

    I did search through the forums, but, I'm not really making any progress. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Try /etc/init.d/zimbra stop, and the ps aux | grep zimbra to ensure all processes have died. If not then kill them off. Then try the upgrade. Just ensure you have a good backup.

    Ok. I did this. The entire upgrade appeared to be normal, until the very end. Here are the last few lines of output from the upgrade:

    Restoring existing configuration file from /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.03122009-084437.log
    Starting ldap...done.
    Setting defaults...done.
    Upgrading from 5.0.10_GA_2609 to 5.0.14_GA_2850
    Stopping zimbra services
    Session terminated, killing shell... ...killed.
    Stop failed - exiting
    UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
    So, I went ahead and did the following:

    sudo su - zimbra
    zmcontrol start
    And I got this output:

            Starting logger...Done.
            Starting mailbox...Done.
            Starting antispam...Done.
            Starting antivirus...Done.
            Starting snmp...Done.
            Starting spell...Done.
            Starting mta...Done.
            Starting stats...Done.
    Everything appears to be working normally. I am marking this as solved. However, let me know if there is anything else you would like me to look into.
