I'd suggest going back further in the logs to see when services stopped, and then look for a stacktrace or other information in the logs that might indicate why.

zmconfigd tries hard to keep Zimbra running; when it sees that a config file has changed, or a process has stopped, it will restart impacted services.

If you have autoupdates configured on your server, recall 8.8 relies on Zimbra repositories. If a new Zimbra package was download that required a restart of services, zmconfigd would do that.

Hope that helps you go the next step; send us some more info and we'll try to help further.

All the best,
Mark

You can increase the log level of zmconfigd to ebug logging by executing

Code: Select all

zmlocalconfig -e zmconfigd_log_level=4
zmconfigdctl restart


The default log level is 3. I think there is even a higher level 5 available.

Apart from that, it looks like the experimental imapd makes problems. Try disabling it.

I made upgrade one more time. After that in 2 days i got mails with information about stop/start services, but the time of them was incorrect. So i suppose that the mail was send just after upgrade but with delays. After that time, i dont get any mail and all services works
