    Default zimbra 7.1.1: zmmailboxdctl is not running on cold standby server


    I am running 7.1.1. on CentOS for our production server, and set up a standby server with hourly rsync /opt/zimbra to standby server following the steps here:Harley77-Backup - Zimbra :: Wiki . The standby server used to work well; But it broken after i upgraded both servers from 7.0.1 to 7.1.1 with P5. When i try to run "zmcontrol start" on standby server, the zmmailboxdctl could not start.

    [zimbra@zimbra ~]$ zmcontrol start
    Starting ldap...Done.
    Starting zmconfigd...Done.
    Starting logger...Done.
    Starting convertd...Done.
    Starting mailbox...Done.
    Starting antispam...Done.
    Starting antivirus...Done.
    Starting snmp...Done.
    Starting spell...Done.
    Starting mta...Done.
    Starting stats...Done.
    [zimbra@zimbra ~]$ zmcontrol status
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    convertd Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    zmmailboxdctl is not running.
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    stats Running
    zmconfigd Running

    And i looked into /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log and found some Java.jdbc error:

    "2011-09-09 11:35:07,495 INFO [main] [] system - Setting mysql connector property: maxActive=100
    2011-09-09 11:35:07,767 FATAL [main] [] system - Config initialization failed

    Anyone can help me with that? Maybe i need to upgrade to latest 7.1.2?

    I just tried to upgraded standby server from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2, then the service start up. I guess it cleared out all the java odbc errors. Does it means i have to upgrade our production server from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 as well?
