Weird issue: mailboxd's java process running as postfix user

Postby 6233maxxer » Sun Jun 21, 2015 1:13 pm

Weird issue (7.2.3NE): after a rsync from server2 to server1, the zmmailboxd process is running as postfix user instead of zimbra!


What could cause this? I ran a find to see all the files in /opt/zimbra owned by the postfix user but they're only postfix data stuff! 


What could it be?


thanks

There's a "zimbra_uid" parameter in localconfig! While migrating from a server to another the zimbra uid was different, tough causing the issue!

when migration PAY MUCH ATTENTION to the zimbra_uid parameter!

Hi maxxer,

What Wiki did you followed? It wasn't in that wiki?

I restored using this page: https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Network_Edition_Disaster_Recovery

But indeed it doesn't involve moving the installation to a different server.

By doing a search the only relevant page I found referring to that param is this: https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Ajcody-Notes-Server-Move#Preparing_NEWHOST_Server
