I managed to do something a bit stupid.
The filesytem was full and Zimbra wasn't accepting mail. Whilst formatting new drives and setting up extra storage I needed to get zimbra back up and running so I cleared as many log files as possible from the system including what I thought were a lot of old log files from the ldap logs directory. Little did I know that these were critical for LDAP/Slapd to run.
Now zimbra won't run and gives me an error about being unable to determine what services to run when I try to start it.
I know it was a foolish thing to do. I have tried a few solutions posted here about rebuilding corrupt LDAP databases but because there literally *isn't* a database to recover they are understandably not working.
If I try to run an update from zimbra 5 to 6 will it write a base db back into place?
Thanks for any of your help help or suggestions!!!
