Auto updates started a bit ago and have three or four servers sending pages about exim & IMAP failures.

Anyone else?

Okay if anyone else comes here looking for info.

Appears this new security update does something to mail services early, crashes them, and then you have the possibility of having exim/imap/clamd/etc crashed for 20-30 minutes.

BUT things come up again later.

Same issue here... was woken up by a barrage of failures on one server... Upcp was hung and i had to kill it and force it to run again...

We had multiple IMAP and exim failures overnight, caused by a failed cPanel/WHM update. I've forced a fresh update buy dovecot is still rejecting all login requests. Our customers are not happy that they can't access their emails :(

Resolved:

service cpanel stop
/scripts/perlinstaller --force Storable
/scripts/upcp --force
service cpanel start

What exactly did this update break? I'm having the same issue on my server. upcp doesn't seem to fix it. Also tried upexim. I'm trying it one more time now that I've forced the reinstall of Storable. Wish me luck.

Edit: Pretty sure reinstalling Storable is key to getting things running again. It appears to have fixed my issue.

OK.... The issue started again for me. Any other idea's as what to try? Oddly enough I can still log into dovcot though. I'm still getting the failure notices. Right now it seems to only be assp2(spam assassin replacement), clamd, and exim failing.
