LDAP issues again

Postby glennbtn » Fri Oct 25, 2013 3:03 am

Hi All
Had ldap issues on a customer machine when it was running 8.0.3. Was advised by many that it needed to go up to 8.0.4 to resolve the issue. We have had no issues for months until yesterday. The server keeps becoming unavailable again, nothing has changed on the box since it's updated approx 2 months ago to 8.0.4. Checked all certificates and dns etc which are all fine but still getting this issue as below. Have to say that never had any of these issues on v7 and have quite a few boxes still running that version.
Any help her would be great, thanks
Glenn

Hi
When we get this error it's hard to eve get ssh access so I end up bouncing the box. I will check the next time it happens if I can get in

Do you eventually get a login prompt from SSH ? It could be that your DNS settings on the server are wrong. When connecting to an SSH server it does perform a rDNS check.

Hi
I do eventually but something slows the box down so much when this issue happens so I bounce it quick to keep the customers off my back. The dns settings are correct and ssh normally is fine. Have double checked DNS with my other Zimbra boxes and all good.

This might not be related but I had a ZCS 8 on CentOS 6 with similar problem but no error on logs. Mailbox server suddenly hanged, but I can successfully ssh to it to restart its services (zmcontrol restart). Was too advised to patch it, but to 8.0.2.
Fixes advised did not solve it until I have configured it to be able to do full backup successfully.
