    Default Postfix problem

    Hi all,

    I changed the size of messages in the admin of Zimbra and over night it crashed. Now upon restart /var/log/zimbra.log yields the following error:

    fatal: bad numerical configuration: message_size_limit =

    the mailbox and MTA refuse to start and I can't log into the admin port to fix... How can I change the messages _size_limit back to the default through the console?

    Thanks !

    Looks like it's just blank. What does the console show? After you reset it to a number just restart the MTA. This will re-write the config file.

    Sorry for my ignorance but how do I set the new value from the console? That's what I'm having difficulty figuring out.

    How did you change it the first time?

    Unhappy

    Hi,

    I am having this problem too, but when I enter

    zmprov mcf zimbraMtaMaxMessageSize 10240000

    I get the following error:

    [] INFO: I/O exception (java.net.ConnectException) caught when processing request: Connection refused
    [] INFO: Retrying request
    [] INFO: I/O exception (java.net.ConnectException) caught when processing request: Connection refused
    [] INFO: Retrying request
    [] INFO: I/O exception (java.net.ConnectException) caught when processing request: Connection refused
    [] INFO: Retrying request
    ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)


    This is what I have been trying to do:

    I had a working installation (3.1) on FC4. Then I did this:

    1. Backup up zimbra (and everything else)
    2. Installed FC5
    3. Installed Zimbra 4.5 from bin
    4. Removed Zimbra 4.5 from /opt/zimbra
    5. Restored 3.1 to /opt/zimbra
    6. Ran install.sh to upgrade from 3.1 to 4.5

    The upgrade seems to have run through OK, but when I try to start zimbra I get this:

    [zimbra@ls2kserver ~]$ zmcontrol start
    Host ls2kserver.lifestyletrust.org.nz
    Starting ldap...Done.
    Starting logger...Done.
    Starting mailbox...Done.
    Starting antispam...Done.
    Starting antivirus...Done.
    Starting snmp...Done.
    Starting spell...Done.
    Starting mta...FAILED
    postmap: fatal: bad numerical configuration: message_size_limit =
    postalias: fatal: bad numerical configuration: message_size_limit =
    postfix failed to start

    If I run zmcontrol status I get this:

    [zimbra@ls2kserver ~]$ zmcontrol status
    Host ls2kserver.lifestyletrust.org.nz
    antispam Running
    antivirus Stopped
    zmclamdctl is not running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    tomcat is not running
    mta Stopped
    postfix is not running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    [zimbra@ls2kserver ~]$

    Any help will be very gratefully received!
