    Default Newly installed 4.5 server dies after 2-3 hours of operating

    New server for up to 10 users,
    PentiumD3.0, 2Gb
    2x160Gb HDD SATA (software raid1)
    CentOS 4.5
    Zimbra 4.5 (latest from open source site)

    Server starts up okay, no errors in logs, starts Zimbra up, works without any problems for 2-3 hours and then the weird stuff starts happening:
    1. Zimbra services become unavailable, no mail, no http interface
    2. several minutes later system restarts.

    overheating checked and rechecked - the machine is like a fridge.
    couldn't find anything in system logs

    Run a memory check on your server, symptoms you describe are not likely to be caused by Zimbra.

    I thought it was the kernel panicking, everything points to that, except the fact that the system logs are clean (/var/log/messages*, dmesg)

    that's why I'm posting it here, and not on CentOS/RH forum

    I understand why you are posting here but, as I said, the likelihood of Zimbra causing that sort of problem is extremely remote. I would suggest this is a hardware problem, make sure all your memory is seated correctly and run a check on it.
