    Default [SOLVED] ERROR - failed to start slapd

    I do not know why I am getting this error "ERROR - failed to start slapd"
    The service is not already running and I have no clue what logs I can check.
    I am running FC5. This all worked when I installed Zimbra the first time but I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and I cannot get it to work now. Any help would be great.

    Default netstat -a info

    I had to cut it off because it was to long. I cut off the active unix domain sockets

    [root@localhost shoe]# netstat -a

    Okay.
    I was thinking that perhaps you had another instance of ldap running.

    Here are some tips that will help.
    1) What's in the installation log? /tmp/ & /var/log/zimbra.log Especially look for any errors before starting ldap
    2) What's your hosts file look like?
    3) I noticed that you had uninstalled it. Did you use ./install.sh -u ? I think perhaps LDAP didn't stop when you uninstalled it. Trust me that I know from experence that you can delete a file while it's running. Just ask marc

    Hmm apears it is complaning about a uknown user. It shows this in the zimbra.log.

    Default

    Have you altered the main.cf file?

    I would advise that you shut down all zimbra services and do a upgrade. That should fix the main.cf file.

    PS- Just to make sure, I would check to make sure the ZCS services have stopped.
    ps auxx |grep zimbra
    kill any left over services.
