Restarting Zimbra Collaboration Server ZCS

Thanks for stopping by! Call us at 330-352-2174 or email us at questions@mastermindsinc.com

We love Zimbra Collaboration Server for our clients and there are times when we need to restart it.

To restart Zimbra, you need to login via ssh and switch to the zimbra user and issue the proper commands to zmcontrol.

The series of commands looks like this:

  • su zimbra
  • zmcontrol stop
  • zmcontrol start

When you stop, you will see a series of messages like this:

Host mail.example.com Stopping vmware-ha...Done. Stopping zmconfigd...Done. Stopping stats...Done. Stopping mta...Done. Stopping spell...Done. Stopping snmp...Done. Stopping cbpolicyd...Done. Stopping archiving...Done. Stopping opendkim...Done. Stopping antivirus...Done. Stopping antispam...Done. Stopping proxy...Done. Stopping memcached...Done. Stopping mailbox...Done. Stopping logger...Done. Stopping ldap...Done.

When you start up you will see messages like this:

Host mail.example.com Starting ldap...Done. Starting zmconfigd...Done. Starting logger...Done. Starting mailbox...Done. Starting memcached...Done. Starting proxy...Done. Starting antispam...Done. Starting opendkim...Done. Starting snmp...Done. Starting spell...Done. Starting mta...Done. Starting stats...Done.

That's the general way to restart the Zimbra Collaboration Server. Some other helpful commands include:

  • zmcontrol status - displays the status of all of Zimbra's services that are currently running.
  • zmaccts - this nice little script displays all email addresses grouped by domain. Quick and easy!
