Hi guys, let me start out by saying I am pretty new to the whole zimbra thing... I do have a decent amount of linux experience, but when it comes to email I am an exchange guy... I recently took over our Zimbra environment when our linux guy quit, so here we are. Anyway, last weekend we called in a contract in our area that originally setup the zimbra system for us to upgrade us from SLES9 and zimbra 3. something to 5.0.4 on SLES10. The upgrade took most of the weekend to get done, but we finally got everything back up and running with 2 fairly sizeable exceptions. 1) zmprov will only run in ldap mode. if you run it normally it returns the following error:

zimbra@mailserv6:/> zmprov gaa
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpClient.<init>(Lo rg/apache/commons/httpclient/params/HttpClientParamsV

The other thing is that the Zimbra admin page is painfully slow. I am seeing from 10 to 15 seconds to execute any operation. SO... 10 seconds to search for a account, 10 seconds to open the account, 10 seconds to change tabs, 10 seconds to check the Out of office message box, 10 seconds to save... VERY SLOW. I am wondering if maybe the same thing that is making zmprov not run is a issue for the web interface. Also, zmprov in ldap mode is very slow as well. The box this is running on is not slow either, itís a dual xeon 3.0 dual core with 4GB of ram. Any assistance that anyone can provide would be very helpful.

Thanks
