[Solved] Proper way to reboot with Zimbra?

Postby tonyg » Wed Aug 08, 2018 5:53 pm

I'm running 8.8.9 over CentOS 7. As I've been getting more familiar with the environment, I break a couple things, services fail to start, I fix them, everything comes back, we're good.
Sometimes I see old .pid files, and I've been wondering if I'm not restarting the server properly. For example, we have at least these three commands available to us:

- shutdown -r now
- init 6
- reboot

Is there one method or another that does a proper "zmcontrol stop" rather than just killing all of the processes? Or is killing the processes acceptable?

I've never had a problem with ZCS when shutting it down with either of the following:

Code: Select all

systemctl reboot

shutdown -r now
Either of those should shutdown ZCS correctly.

If you'd like to see this implemented in a future version of ZCS then please vote on Bugzilla entries 97706 & 108168
