    Default Zimbra startup hangs after install CentOS 4.2

    I had this same problem on Milestone 3. Just upgraded to the opensource binary install for RHEL 4 on CentOS 4. Upgrade was super smooth, actually very informative yet simple and easy.

    After upgrading I still have 1 problem I had when using Milestone 3 plus a new problem.

    When starting Zimbra it hangs for a very long time (sometimes hours) at this stage in the log file:

    Code:
    Feb 10 18:35:31 centos zimbramon[4553]: 4553:info: Starting mta
    After waiting it out i finally get this in the log file after it (notice the first line has a future date?):

    Code:
    Feb 11 02:36:08 centos postfix/postqueue[8031]: fatal: Queue report unavailable - mail system is down
    Feb 10 18:36:08 centos postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.5/conf/main.cf

    I'm not sure what it's hanging up on yet...

    The next problem is that everything is only listening on a ipv6 socket and no ipv4. Here is what the netstat listening sockets look like:

    Code:
    [eger@centos ~]$ netstat -an |grep LISTEN
    tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:389                 0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN

    This may be a server specific problem. I may try installing a fresh copy of CentOS 4 and starting a fresh Zimbra install.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Are you running in a Virtual machine? Can you identify which process is taking a long time to start? How much CPU/RAM do you have?

    I am running in a virtual machine with 384meg RAM (for the VM) and 2x2.8g xeon. I was thinking it might have something to do with the VM. I haven't identified which process it is that is taking a long time to load. I will add some stuff to the startup script so I can easily identify the part at which it is hanging.

    EDIT:

    If it helps at all this is what it hangs at:

    Code:
    root      2162  0.0  0.2  4840  668 ?        S    20:52   0:00 initlog -q -c /etc/rc3.d/S99zimbra start
    root      2163  0.0  0.4  5636 1140 ?        S    20:52   0:00 /bin/bash /etc/rc3.d/S99zimbra start
    root      2164  0.0  0.4  6164 1220 ?        S    20:52   0:00 su - zimbra -c zmcontrol startup
    Wouldn't think that helps tho since it could be anything in zmcontrol. Is there a way I could get it to print out in the console from zmcontrol?

    Kinda slim on the RAM... Take a look at this post... Lots of VM's hit this.

    Yea I had a similar problem my first try. Eventually everything worked after it finally finished starting.

    I just did a reinstall of CentOS 4.2 and Zimbra on a new VM with 512RAM and now everything is starting up within 20 seconds. Guess the VM doesn't play well with java and needs a good amount of memory to play nice.

    Now it looks like everything is working great. I can start playing with this wonderfeul open source app! Goodbye qmailrocks!!! =p
