I am using the "Simple Shell Script Method" for backing up our open source ZCS 5.0.8 installation and the stats service never starts following the restart of ZCS.

I've tried to restart the stats service via a root cron job scheduled several hours after the backup completes and this also does not work. The root restart script contains the command sudo -u zimbra /opt/zimbra/bin/zmstatctl start.

I'd like to figure out why the stats service doesn't start via the restart command in the backup script, but any automated means of restarting would save me the trouble of manually restarting the stats service every morning.
