    Default MTA fails to start, can't find libldap

    This is a fresh install, well 2 days old, of 4.5.6 running on Ubuntu 6. Upon installation the MTA was starting up properly as I sent and received a few test messages. I went to shift some of my personal mail over to it today and I discover that I can no longer receive or send.

    I see in the admin panel that the MTA is not starting. Pretty obvious error but why? The file is there, I have run the perms fix script as well.

    Any suggestions? What other info can i provide?

    Thanks

    Code:
    zimbra@equilibrium:~/libexec$ zmcontrol start mta

    Default

    Check your installation of ldap and so. There may have been an update installed that has trashed the old zimbra-specific ldap files..

    ldd /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.9/sbin/postalias
    ldd /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.9/sbin/postfix

    To see where and what those binaries are looking for. It may not even be looking for the ones you have in opt zimbra.

    good luck!

    Default fixed

    Thanks. It looks like something did something undesirable to libldap2.

    A simple apt-get remove and apt-get install did the trick.

    Thanks again.
