    Default LDAP Hell!! Crashed System

    Over the Christmas Vacation. We had a Certificate expire. The tech on call tried to create a new cert but was having issues. So they decided to update from Ubuntu 6.06 to 8.04. To make a long story short we have not had an email server for almost a week now. We reinstalled from scratch Ubuntu 8.04 and followed the directions on the Wiki to backup and restore on a new server. (I think the backup is bad)

    But we keep getting the same message:
    ldap_url and ldap_master_url cannot be the same on an ldap replica

    Setting defaults from ldap...ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: ZimbraLdapContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost:389)

    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: ZimbraLdapContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost:389)

    I have already visited the forum and have verified my Hostname ran zmfixperm.

    System: Ubuntu 8.04.1 - FOSS 5.0.11

    So the plan was copy over the /opt/zimbra backup and run -s using the Ubuntu 8 package right?
    Was this the first time you've ran the installer? Or is this a 2nd+ time and you had previous failures?

    Let's check your /opt/zimbra/conf/localconfig.xml values:
    -ldap_is_master (is this false on mistake?)

    You may need to:
    mv /opt/zimbra/conf/localconfig.xml /opt/opt/zimbra/conf/localconfig.xml.2
    mv /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig2
    Copy in your good localconfig.xml from backup.
    Run the installer again.

    To help you further we really need the /opt/zimbra/.install_history, as well as the relevant /tmp/install.log.# & zmsetup.#.log

    I was able to get the server up and the clients and mailboxes over. It was an LDAP password issue. I used the zmldappasswd. The problem that I have now is all email is being deferred.

    The postque -p shows:

    (host[xx.xx.xx.xx] said: 451 4.0.0 Temporary message delivery failure try again (in reply to end of DATA command)

    And users are getting an error sending mail:

    A network service error has occurred. msg: system failure: IOException
    code: service.FAILURE
    method: SendMsgRequest
    detail: soap:Receiver
    trace: btpool0-3:1230641275264:5b43fa78fb7be2b0
