Re: Potential Bug: MTA may not start with zmcontrol

I'm wondering if this could happen just doing zmcontrol stop / start. I run a backup script that does a stop / start, and every so often I wake up in the morning to find hundreds of emails stuck on our external spam filter because the mta service isn't running. A simple zmcontrol restart fixes it, a...

Re: MTA shuts down, mail within domain still works.

I guess I'm confused at to why your email server thinks the filtering service is trying to relay to a domain it's supposed to be receiving for. What's your output for these: [zimbra@mail ~]$ postconf mydestination mydestination = localhost [zimbra@mail ~]$ postconf mynetworks mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/...

Re: MTA shuts down, mail within domain still works.

This is strange because if I remove them from the MTA I get a normal "denied" entry in the logs like this. root@MAIL:/var/log# grep denied zimbra.log Oct 11 06:54:14 MAIL postfix/smtpd[22770]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from mail.filter.com[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]: 554 5.7.1 >: Relay access denied; f...

Re: When to use Multi vs Single?

I'd keep it simple and start with a single server, then add more mailbox servers as you need them. If anything, I might stick a mta/proxy in front those mailbox servers.

Re: Ubuntu upgrade with zcs installed

Yes, always do a clean install of the OS. The Zextras tool is definitely recommended for this.

Not at all. It's what I use the most.

Re: Peer review for backup plan

Here's the way I do it. I've tested a restore copying the data.mdb back manually after doing an rsync and it works perfectly.

Code: Select all

/opt/zimbra/common/bin/mdb_copy /opt/zimbra/data/ldap/mdb/db /backup/directory
rsync -avHK --delete --exclude 'data.mdb' /opt/zimbra /backup/directory/

Re: ZCS 8.8.9 : CentOS to Ubuntu

I've ran Zimbra on both over the years and never had a problem with either OS. I'm with Bill; I wouldn't bother migrating just for the sake of standardizing. But if it's really, really, really bugging the crap out of you, I'd use the 30 day trial of Zextras Suite and export a backup, then import it ...

Re: upgrade from ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 16.04

Only other thing I can think of is make sure apparmor is disabled/removed and check permissions. I've never had issues doing this kind of upgrade.
