Confirming heath status of Zimbra system

Postby paul » Sun May 19, 2019 11:00 pm


I’m looking for some input on creating a script to verify a running zimbra system (single server at this point).

The reason I need it is that I have found Zimbra occasionally fails to start cleanly after reboots. Example causes are LDAP slow to start causing service failures (several), patches changing file permissions (x2), and other failures that I never resolved, but a restart fixed.

I reboot regularly in the early morning as part of my backup system (you can see a discussion on backups here:

After boot, I run the following checks:
- scan for any services not up via “zmcontrol status”
- attempt to send an email via “sendemail”

If there are any problems, I run
zmcontrol stop
zmcontrol start

Does anyone else have any other useful checks I could run to confirm the health of the system, plus any remediation that might be useful.

Thanks for any input.
