    I hate to get way off topic but it's kind of ironic that your monitor says SyncMaster and your error is about syncing...:eek:

    hi

    I had this problem today too, I posted a screenshot in other thread http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=63233

    Is there a manually solution to this?
    I read that one person said of running quotaoff -a will fix it but i dont know if you will be able to control disk space and mailbox space after running it.

    thanks

    Turning qutoa off is ignoring the issue. Its a bug in the kernel that can only be fixed by using a different kernel. You can use one of the test kernels here http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/rhel4/RPMS.kernel/ or you can downgrade to a previous kernel, maybe 2.6.9-42.0.1 or .42 won't have the problem.

    So the problem is registered only with this ones 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL and 2.6.9-42.0.3.EL, right?

    So if I use 2.6.9-42.EL i wouldnt have the issue anymore?

    Thanks

    I didn't have any problems when I was running .42, so I would suspect you should be ok.

    You have really one of 2 choices.

    1. Run beta kernel from above URL
    2. Run previous kernel (likely .42 was the last one not effected)

    I'm doing #2 on the majority of my servers.
