[SOLVED] zmclamdctl is not running

Postby SamTzu » Mon Jul 28, 2008 6:26 am

Ones again Amavis stopped working without any visible reason.

(No updates/upgrades anything.)
zmcontrol status sais...

zmclamdctl is not running

(Seems there is all ready an instance running?)
I had to go to admin panel and disable Antivirus and manually reque all the mail to get all the queues empy.
I don't want to sound like I'm whining (except I am) but the spam/virus filtering on Zimbra seems to be too unstable.
The "Server Statistics" shows the mail servers Spam_Activity stops dead on 00:00 hours.

(Yet another "maintanance" bug?)

zmclamdctl is not running

(Seems there is all ready an instance running?)[/QUOTE]How about some information from the log files? What happens if you try to restart it - does it run OK or fail and if it fails what are the log entries? How much RAM is on this system? Is this a Network Edition or Open Source install?
[quote user="SamTzu"]I had to go to admin panel and disable Antivirus and manually reque all the mail to get all the queues empy.[/QUOTE]That is the normal thing to get the mail from the deferred queue.

(Yet another "maintanance" bug?)[/QUOTE]Have you searched bugzilla for similar incidents or filed and bug report or even searched the forums for resolutions/troubleshooting tips on a/v or Server Statistics problems?
It's near impossible to help when you give so little useful debugging information.

As mentioned in the first post...

Nothing was done before the problem.

No restarts, updates, upgrades.

[SOLVED] zmclamdctl is not running

Postby phoenix » Mon Jul 28, 2008 11:10 am

Try downloading the definitions files again, do the following:
su - zimbra

mkdir /tmp/clamdb

mv /opt/zimbra/clamav/db/* /tmp/clamdb

/opt/zimbra/clamav/bin/freshclam --config-file=/opt/zimbra/conf/freshclam.conf

zmamavisdctl stop

zmamavisdctl start
and see if it runs OK.

This fixed my server this morning when clamav was causing the CPU utilization on the server to be very high and no mail was being delivered.
This is actually the 3rd time that the server has hung since upgrading to 7.2.0 a few weeks ago. It may not be related, but this never happened before upgrading.
Usually, if we just restart the server, everything is ok, but this time even a server reboot would not get the server back.
Running the commands above got the server working again.
