Hi there, zimbra works fine - only if i reinstall/upgrade it every bootup.

I have to sudo killall slapd (for some reason) and let zmcontrol start bring it up otherwise it errors, every bootup. THat was a couple of days ago - now when i boot up something refuses to come up at all!

zimbra@localhost:~$ zmcontrol start
Host localhost
Starting ldap...Done.
Starting logger...Done.
Starting mailbox...Done.
Starting imapproxy...Done.
Starting antispam...Done.
Starting antivirus...Done.
Starting snmp...Done.
Starting spell...Done.
Starting mta...Done.
zimbra@localhost:~$

(all good and well, except..)

zimbra@localhost:~$ zmcontrol status
Host localhost
antispam Running
antivirus Running
imapproxy Running
ldap Running
logger Running
mailbox Stopped
tomcat is not running
mta Running
snmp Running
spell Running
zimbra@localhost:~$

Right, so zimbra lied to me before mailbox obviously didn't come up. (this seems like a bug? not reporting correctly?)

Okay, so lets investigate tomcat.

zimbra@localhost:~$ /opt/zimbra/bin/tomcat status
zimbra@localhost:~$
(does not report anything?)

zimbra@localhost:~$ ps aux | grep tomcat

zimbra@localhost:~$ /opt/zimbra/bin/tomcat status
zimbra@localhost:~$

(still not telling me anything...)

my mail.err log file says this:

It seems I have something wrong with postfix as *well* as tomcat? or perhaps tomcat won't function without postfix?

Either way, how can i fix this? I have no idea what to do, but i hope i have provided enough information for someone to work this out..

Thanks in advance!
