I'm getting "Maintenance ended; however, it did not exit cleanly (256)" with 68.0.12 (I have for several days/versions now).

For me I have no outdated processes running.

My error is:
Code:
[2017-11-13 21:45:56 -0500] E    [/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_eximstats] The “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_eximstats” command (process 494790) reported error number 255 when it ended.
Running /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_eximstats gives:
Code:
Waiting for “tailwatchd” to restart ………Job for tailwatchd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status tailwatchd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
…failed.

tailwatchd has failed. Contact your system administrator if the service does not automagically recover.

Hi @rinkleton,

Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look to see why tailwatchd isn't starting on this system?

Thanks.

Hello,

To update, it looks like restarting the tailwatchd service solved the issue:

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd
Thank you.
