In other news, following a brief conversation, has there been any update to this problem?

I remind, our server has presented disfunctionality since the latest patch (34).

Key configuration variables are not loaded from config when the mailbox server boots.

We had to manually interfere with XML configuration files because variables were not picked.

No error was reported during installation (patch process)
No error was encountered by zimbra installation concerning access rights on temp folder

Errors appeared on zmmailbox.out log, concerning "malformed" variables, exactly as OP describes (no need to repeat).

Having bypassed these, we found that we also had to add to xml:
- zimbra http port (8080)
- zimbra admin url (/zimbraAdmin)
- zimbra admin port (7071)

We are not sure what else was not picked, the server seems to function ok-ish after we manually added these values.

We would deeply appreciate an applicable response.

Best regards,
Stavros

I just ran into this after upgrading to Zimbra 9 p29 (from p24).

After a lot of digging, I got it to work by running

Code: Select all

chmod u+w jetty_base/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF


Before doing this the permissions on that directory were:

Code: Select all

$ ls -ld jetty_base/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF
dr-xr-xr-x. 6 zimbra zimbra 4096 Jan 13 20:09 jetty_base/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF
