    Dears,

    Wait that you can help me, we had a VPS OpenVZ based with CentOS release 6.5 (Final) and Cpanel /DNS Only, i'm using as relay and cluster dns server, when i reboot the server see that exim work as well, but when i try to restart exim manually after to do changes on the mxsecondary file (for add or delete domains) show an error:

    root@teta [~]# service exim restart
    Shutting down exim: [ OK ]
    Shutting down spamd: [FAILED]

    Then when i see the exim status show this:

    root@teta [~]# service exim status
    exim dead but subsys locked

    Then i can not start exim again, if i reboot the server, exim start and work perfectly.

    Thank you very much by your help.

    There are two things I've seen cause this issue:

    1) The presence of /etc/eximdisable, just delete this file and restart exim

    2) The server being out of disk space and/or inodes, use 'df -h' and 'df -i' to confirm.
