    Default [SOLVED] New installatrion Ubuntu 8.04.4, ZCS 6.06 - stuck at "Starting servers.

    I just performed a from scratch installation of Ubuntu 8.04.4, with DNS server and OpenSSH then fixed the DNS to have an MX record locally on my machine and performed the installation as per this procedure:
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server (Hardy Heron) Install Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki

    At the end of the installation, this is what is displayed:

    Finished installing webclient skins.
    Setting zimbraFeatureIMEnabled=FALSE...done.
    Setting zimbraFeatureTasksEnabled=TRUE...done.

    You have the option of notifying Zimbra of your installation.
    This helps us to track the uptake of the Zimbra Collaboration Suite.
    The only information that will be transmitted is:
    The VERSION of zcs installed (6.0.6_GA_2324_UBUNTU8)
    The ADMIN EMAIL ADDRESS created (admin@ingenieur.org)

    Starting servers...


    I'm stuck there...

    I'm installing on a 1GHz system, so I do expect it to be generally slow... but 1/2h of waiting?

    I'm running top on another terminal, and seeing thing like zmclamdctl zmmtaconfig java freshclam running on the system...

    Should I just wait? Should I reboot?

    Right now I can wait for a few hours and take care of the familly for supper... but then what? Did my installation fail again? Darn... It,s been quite a few times now...

    Well, it took 45 minutes to start the servers...

    It's now installing the zimlets...

    Anyone else experienced such a long delay?

    I'm starting to consider buying a new machine to get this running faster...

    The "Starting servers" is a phase which takes relatively long, but as far as I remember it never took longer than, say, 3 minutes (probably shorter) on any install or upgrade I've done (usually ~2GHz dual or quad-core with 2 to 4 GB RAM). Seeing you have an old 1GHz cpu, how's your RAM?

    I have 512Mb of RAM.

    The CPU was at 80-90% user time for the 45 minutes.

    Now it's up but I have another problem.

    I've redirected my domain's emails towards my server, but I do not receive mails.

    I've tried telnet to port 25 on the server from the LAN and I normal response:
    220 ingenieur.org ESMTP Postfix

    The MTA shows "running" as status...

    Here is the log /opt/zimbra/log/zmmtaconfig.log:
    Sun Apr 25 16:45:29 2010 zmmtaconfig started on ingenieur.org with loglevel=3 pid=6627

    I don't know how to post my log in a scrolable window...

    Can somebody teach me?

    It's a question of server speed....

    How much ram does the server have?

    One thing you can do while its starting is open another window and "tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log" while services are starting and you can watch the progress.

    I got an email with a response to this thread by TS, which apparently has been deleted now, saying he only has 512MB of RAM in the system. Well, look no further, that's the issue. Zimbra needs at least 1GB.
