This may be a false positive.. I noticed since upgrade to 11.32, that each time I make any Exim Configuration Chagnes and save the changes, I see this message:


Your configuration changes have been saved!
Exim MTA...
Waiting for exim to restart.....finished.

exim ([exim] ) running as mailnull with PID 12540 (process table check method)

exim has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
...Done

Each time I check though, Exim is still running just fine. I do a restart (/scripts/restartsrv_exim) just to be sure however.

Happening on all of our 11.32 boxes right now.

I'm seeing this same behavior. When I make a change in the Exim Configuration Editor, then save, I get "exim has failed", however nothing bad is logged in /var/log/exim_mainlog, and things seem to work just fine after the resttart.

I am on WHM 11.32.2 (build 28) STABLE.

Nick, do you still want me or others to open a ticket on this situation?
