    Default Starting Box without Tomcat

    Currently, we are running into a problem with startup of the server. This happened after months of working flawlessly. It appears to be a Tomcat issue, and I don't believe it is memory related.

    While I resolve this, I'd like my existing users to be able to use the box? Is that possible? To just start the MTA, IMAP and POP3 services so they can continue to access their mail as usual using their mail client?

    I am desperate to minimize their downtime. We have a backup mail server in place if the primary is unreachable, but that's obviously not the same.

    Messages sent are immediately returned with the following relaying denied error:

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    user@destination.org

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 554 5.7.1 < user@destination.org>: Relay access denied

    Please search the forums and/or wiki for 'mynetworks', that should solve your problem.

    I am now to this. Can you please provide a temporary syntax that will work for all local networks with 192.168.x.x?

    Thank you in advance.

    That would depend on your subnet but 182.168.1.0/24 is the format (in addition to the loopback address), details are in the wiki & plenty of examples in the forums.

    This zimbra box isn't local for users. Their local IP range is 192.168.2.x and their subnet I believe is 255.255.252.0

    The external ip address for them is 66.242.118.255 (changed for example).
    My IP address is 71.53.239.255 and I cannot connect either.

    I tired the following without luck:
    Code:
     
    
    zimbra@group:/root$  zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaMyNetworks "127.0.0.0/8 10.1.0.0/16 192.168.2.0/24 66.242.118.244"

    The subnet is 192.168.2.0 and the mask is 255.255.252.0 - however, if the users aren't local you won't need that entry in mynetworks.

    Is this server behind a firewall and/or NAT router or do you have it on a public IP Address?
    Regards

    This server is on a public IP address.

    The users attempting to connect are behind a router, with the public IP address of 66.242.118.255

    Again, while we resolve the problem of Tomcat not starting on startup, we need to have POP/IMAP access for the users of this box.

    They are connecting to this Zimbra Box/Public Web Server from an external network. Though Tomcat is not running, all other services appear online. Attempting to connect to Zimbra through a mail client results in a connection refused.

    I can connect to mail service ports via telnet both from the local box and external network.

    Thank you kindly.

    As previously indicated, my solution was solved thanks to thread:

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...t-startup.html

    Is there a way, however, to assure that this setting is the default on a server reboot. I don't want to experience downtime after a reboot like before. Kindly let me know where the setting is to save this preference.

    Thank you, again, in advance.

    Requesting an update on this.

    Again, I am simply looking to make sure that the commands previously made will automatically take effect after a server reboot. Where can I change these settings so that they are permanent?

    Thank you
