Hello, people!

For some reason my "Server status" show that all services are down. At the same moment all services are up and running. CLI zmcontrol status reports all running.
Sound familiar? Yeah, I've made google search on this topic and know that it's frequent problem, but in my case it can't be solved for some reasons.

I'm running Zimbra Release 8.0.0_GA_5434.RHEL6_64_20120907144743 CentOS6_64 NETWORK edition on CentOS release 6.3 installed with "--platform-override" option.

  • DNS working fine, hosts file contain proper records.

[root@zimbra ~]# hostname
[root@zimbra ~]# grep zimbra /etc/hosts
222.333.111.444   zimbra.mydomain.com  zimbra zimbra.mydomain.com localhost  zimbra localhost.localdomain
[root@zimbra ~]# nslookup zimbra.mydomain.com
Server:         222.333.111.555

Address: 222.333.111.444
  • zimbraLogHostname - points to zimbra host.

# sudo -u zimbra /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov -l gcf zimbraLogHostname
zimbraLogHostname: zimbra.mydomain.com

  • No problems with permission on file system to prevent questions about /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms

  • All files and directories in /opt/zimbra/zmstat/ are owned by zimbra user.

  • Cron is Ok. Was trying to change time interval for zmstatuslog cronjob - didn't help.

[root@zimbra ~]# crontab -u zimbra -l | grep zmstatuslog

I've used 2 different Syslog implementations.

I know about /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsyslogsetup and it's meaning. Both syslog configs are updated by zmsyslogsetup script. Have tried to run syslog-ng and rsyslog separately and both at the same time.

  • And finally I got same RED X'es on Status report
