Hi,

After kernel update for CVE-2017-1000364, dovecot fails to start with following error

Starting Dovecot Imap: doveconf: Fatal: execvp() failed: No such file or directory
[FAILED]

Also /var/run/dovecot does not contain usual link files. It has only three folders empty, login, token-login

Any workaround to fix this issue ?

Hello,

Does this system use Ksplice? If so, check to see if using "uptrack" to update the kernel addresses the issue:

Code:
uptrack-upgrade - y
/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
/scripts/restartsrv_dovecot
Thank you.

We only tried

/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
/scripts/restartsrv_dovecot

Problem is still there
In similar reports, customers were able to address the issue by updating the kernel with the following command (before running the above commands):

Code:
uptrack-upgrade - y
Thank you.
