    I see this rpm update has been applied on our system(s) but we still continue to see solr failing to start.

    Code:

    May 02 09:17:42 XXXXXX  systemd[1]: cpanel-dovecot-solr.service failed.
    
    Do we need to do something after this update to fix the issue?

    Best regards,
    Eric

    Hello Eric,

    I moved this post to a new thread as it's unrelated to the cases discussed on the previous thread.

    The error message suggests another application is modifying your iptables firewall rules, which is preventing the cpanel_dovecot_solr_firewall script from completing.

    Is this system running a firewall management utility such as CSF? If so, try restarting the CSF service to see if that allows cpanel_dovecot_solr to successfully start.

    Thank you.
