ERROR: Cannot start mail services, configuration directory does not exist

I'm running an Xserve G5 with one internal boot drive and one RAID using the other two internal drives. I used Apple's Disk Utility to set-up the RAID.
Back in early December, I moved my mail database and mail store to the RAID. Ever since, when I restart the server, the mailaccess.log generates the following error:
Jan 23 18:51:33 mail master[47]: ERROR: Cannot start mail services, configuration directory does not exist: /Volumes/RAID/mail.data/db
I'm speculating this is a timing error that gets created when Postfix initially can't find the RAID. Then, it must try again and find it because the error message does not repeat and mail starts running.
Is this something to worry about?

Hi Joel,
You're right, it's a timing issues. The mail system is ready for work before the file system is mounted. It's benign.

  • Mail server log says: master[50]: ERROR: Cannot start mail services...

    Recently, after a year or more of relatively smooth service, my OS X Server 10.4.11 Mail services has been locking up daily.
    I was finally able to get some information from the log files (I am a noob to this) and saw the following right after my most recent reboot of the server:
    Oct 5 09:51:11 mm1 master[50]: ERROR: Cannot start mail services, configuration directory does not exist: /Volumes/Data/mail/var/imap
    I checked the server and that directory is indeed there on the partition named "DATA", so I am baffled as why the server does not thing the configuration directory exists?
    drwxr-xr-x 15 cyrusima mail 510 Oct 5 09:51 imap
    drwxr-xr-x 15 root admin 510 Oct 3 20:01 imap.BAK

    Can anyone help me? My customers are yelling for blood because they cannot send/receive emails.

    Thanks Alex for the feedback. You are helpful as always!
    It's good to know that the message I am getting from the mail server about the configuration files is only a temporary thing. Although I find it strange that the mail service doesn't know where its config files are since it is specified in the mail server setup.
    I looked at the log files you mentioned and do not see anything that looks like a specific problem with the mail services themselves.
    Recently, however, I have been having recurring problems where my mail server and my Web/Database server have both become unresponsive at nearly the same time even though they are on different class A networks to where I cannot access them via ARD, Server Admin and even SSH. That is usually when my mail server goes offline. I was afraid it was because of that configuration error I was seeing, but think now that the problem could be something else entirely (maybe some kind of network problem or denial of service hacking attack, no idea).
    Thanks again.

  • Error in sender file adapter: source directory does not exist

    Hi,
    The PI system is 7.11
    I've created sender file adapter with following details:
    Transport Protocol : File System
    Source directory: /interfaces/In
    I checked in AL11 that this path really exists and it does. (I can even see the .txt file that should be processed.)
    But still i get in Communication Channel Monitoring the following error:
    "Configured Source directory "/interfaces/In" does not exist.
    (i also tried to give the source directory as "interfaces/In" and as "//interfaces/In" but still the same error.
    Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    Actually, Need to use forward slash (/) to separate directory names in accordance with the Java specification.
    But wanted to try if that works..
    Also check directory name , path again as this is case sensitive...

  • Destination Directory Does not exist.

    While working in Flash MX 2004, when I want to preview the
    work I've done, I click F12 and get the following Flash MX error

    The publish settings look correct to me. What's up with this?

    If you have PKGDEST variable in /etc/makepkg.conf set then the path you gave it doesn't exist or permission is denied, or if you don't have it set, then you are trying to build the package in a current directory that you don't have permissions to. Its just trying place the pkg.tar.gz somewhere.

  • Error in file receiver adapter (Directory does not exist / cannot be create

    Can somebody help me please??

    Hi Alvaro,
            If your XI server is running on Unix platform then you'll get the access only after mounting 10.128.68.38 this system as a drive. This is equivalent to the windows network mapping.
    Next thing is that once that is done then you can access the path /arbo2000/UploadPinfos/arbodev by mentioning it in your directory path.
    To check whether the above mentioned is the problem then pls do try by doing it with FTP protocol. If it works then for acting as a local directory for NFS you need to mount the drive.
    Cheers

  • OLE DB or ODBC error: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied

    Hi,
    I have one client and one server.  In both hosts I created an OS-user named User1.
    The user have been given various role under the prefix SQLServer2005.
    The default instance of SQL Server and instance (background-process) of
    Analysis Service are also run under User1.
    I connected via Management Studio to Analysis Service directly in the
    server.  I set the permission to access Analysis Service to Everyone. 
    This means everyone should be able to use Analysis Service.  I have set
    ODBC data source to the server.  Testing was successful.
    I created a project to create a cube.  The tables are fairly small (total 300 MB, biggest one 290).
    On project setting (created at client) I set the server host as
    deployment target. I managed to deploy project when all I have are Data
    Source and Data Source Views.
    But on deployment I always failed.   The errors remain the same, begins with
    OLE DB error: OLE DB or ODBC error: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.; 08001.
    I have tried 4 combinations of Impersonation :
    (A) Use a specific username and password
      * in which I supply User1 and the password of User1
    (B) Use the service account
    (C) Use the credentials of the current user
    (D) Default
    Why is this? The server does certainly exist.  I think the error message is wrong.
    I have seen 3 posting that seems related.  One of them say the solution is giving the right impersonation, but gave no detail.  About the privilege, User1 are granted the role of
    SQLServer2005MSOLAP.  What is the solution?
    Thank you,

    I just had this problem and solved it by creating an alias in SQL Server Configuration Manager, as below:
    Scenario: My SQL server is accessible from the internet under my.domain.com, and from itself at ServerName. But the local network can't see itself through the router at my.domain.com, so the deployed project is unable to process the cube, since that would
    require Analysis Services to be able to see the SQL Server at my.domain.com, which it can't do.
    So I changed the server in my project from my.domain.com to ServerName, and I created a local alias to ServerName in SQL Server Configuration Manager, under SQL Native Client 11.0 Configuration, Aliases. In my case, I pointed it to localhost port 1333, and
    used SSH -L 1333:my.domain.com:1433, but I could have pointed the alias directly to the server, just as well. (Verifying... yes, that worked too, so you can forget SSH if you have no interest in it.)

  • ISA Framework:[XCM configuration]='zcrmordermaintain002' does not exist.

    Hi all,
    While configuring a configurable product in service order and service quotation i am getting this error.
    " ISA Framework: The XCM configuration='zcrmordermaintain002' does not exist."
    When i simulate the configuration itself in product master it works fine but the mentioned error occurs
    when i try to edit the product model in the Service Quotation.
    I have already maintain a JCO connection for "Zcrmordermaintain002" and "Zcrmproductsimulation002 " and made an entry of it in the Table "COMM_IPC_PROP".  Do is miss some other entries ?
    Please help me to fix the error.
    Thanks in Advance,

    Hi experts,
    I am able to see the Product Configuration in the Business Transactions
    In my case there were two mistakes.
    Instead of Zcrmordermaintain002 i had configuration as zcrmordermaintain002.
    I guess it should be the problem but i regenerated it.
    Secondly i created 2 separate JCO connections for zcrmproductsimulation and for zcrmordermaintan002.
    For me it worked dat way...
    But the further Problem what i am facing is:
    When i select the configuration in the transaction it is not saving and it show a script error in the explorer
    Stating:
    Error on the page : Access Denied
    Code: 0
    Any Suggestion what could be the problem ?

  • Delivery note/service entry sheet does not exist

    Dear Experts,
    I created Intercompany STO and  Return PO.   INVOIC (EDI Invoice) Idoc generated which failed  with error message :

    So, Invoice was not created eventhough GR is completed for the PO.   
    For Inter company return PO case, I found out that,  GR Based Inv. indicator was checked and hence the idocs failed with above error message.
    When I tested with GR Based Inv. Unchecked,  Idoc was successfully processed and Invoice Created.  
    Why is it so?  why is this indicator resulting in the above error message.  Just cannot understand this.
