    Hi,

    Following the dissapearance of the daily actve system attack emails I have started receieving Cron Daemon reports on a daily basis (only on one of our servers???).

    I have another this morning concerning mailman.....

    &Traceback (innermost last):
    File &/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/qrunner&, line 276, in ?
    lock.lock(timeout=0.5)
    File &/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py&, line 219, in lock
    self.__write()
    File &/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py&, line 350, in __write
    fp = open(self.__tmpfname, 'w')
    IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/locks/qrunner.lock.myserver.com.25575'&

    Any ideas what this is? And why are these cron reports only coming from one server?

    No one else getting this?

    I am starting to get a bit concerned about these emails reports. First the system status reports stop coming altogether and now these new ones start coming from one server!

    I wish cPanel would let us know about these sort of changes.

    i noticed the following cron on a server:
    &/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/qrunner&

    but nothing else.

    do you now where this come from? is this a a cron seting up by an user or is this part from CPanel?

    It use a lot of CPUsage when running...

    these are emails to the system admin.

    to be honest, I am quickly losing patience with cPanel. Its a great product, but when you have little problems like this cPanel dont seem to care.

    I currently have 3 tickets open. One has been open for about 1/2 weeks - no solution. The other were raised with cPanel on Friday and so far I have heard nothing.

    qrunner is the program that sends messages on Mailman's queue. It runs each minute. Even while Cpanel is updating itself, qrunner tries to execute. But when Mailman is rsync'ed from the Cpanel server, your mailman files don't belong any longer to mailman.mailman (since mailman's uid and gid in the Cpanel server may not be the same as in your machine). So, between the moment that Mailman starts being rsync'ed and the moment CPanel chown's mailman.mailman the whole Mailman directory, qrunner cannot run and returns those error message.

    So, check the times the error messages were generated, and if they happen during the Cpanel update, then there's nothing to worry about.
