    Anybody else seen this???

    When I try to restart exim via whm web interface, or via the /scripts/rstartsrv_exim script, the only service that comes up is eximstats.

    <<<<<<<<<
    [root@tiger ~]# /scripts/restartsrv_exim
    Starting eximstats: WARNING: initlog is deprecated and will be removed in a future release
    WARNING: initlog is deprecated and will be removed in a future release
    [ OK ]
    Starting antirelayd: [ OK ]
    root 18924 0.1 0.5 10900 5224 pts/1 S 08:16 0:00 eximstats
    root 18975 0.0 0.0 4760 644 pts/1 R+ 08:17 0:00 grep exim
    >>>>>>>>>


    But when I restart exim via the init.d scripts, it starts fine...

    <<<<<<<<
    [root@tiger ~]# /etc/init.d/exim restart
    Shutting down exim: [FAILED]
    Shutting down antirelayd: [ OK ]
    Shutting down spamd: [ OK ]
    Starting exim: [ OK ]
    Starting exim-smtps: [ OK ]
    Starting antirelayd: [ OK ]
    Starting spamd: [ OK ]

    [root@tiger ~]# ps aux | grep exim
    root 17447 0.0 0.5 10900 5220 ? S 08:07 0:00 eximstats
    mailnull 17679 0.0 0.1 8884 1104 ? Ss 08:07 0:00 /usr/sbin/exim -bd -q1h

    root 18879 0.0 0.0 4760 644 pts/1 R+ 08:16 0:00 grep exim
    >>>>>>>>


    The same result when I restart exim via the whm control panel....

    Anybody have an idea of what's going on? I've tried tracing the restartsrv_exim script to figure out the difference between it and the init.d script, but I'm getting lost.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Try /scripts/eximup -f
    That should take care of it, but watch for any errors and if it don't fix it check /var/logs/ for the exim panic log and the exim main log.
