Subject: Citiserver unresponsive help

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I have a Citadel server that is going unresponsive a couple of times a day.  Random times, cannot track down what causes it.  I am unable to restart or shutdown the citiserve processes when this happens by either the init script or the down command.  If someone could please give me some advice as how to troubleshoot this issue it would be greatly appreciated.  

When this happens, no clients can connect via SMTP or IMAP.  The citiserve process(es) are running.  The OS is Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTs.  Citadel was installed with the Easy Install method.

Thank you in advance.

Phil Schilling

can you have a look whether its blocking on too many connections?

netstat http://citadel.org/doku.php/faq:mastering_your_os:net#networking can show open connections.

if thats the reason, maybe rate limiting can help you ( https://www.debian-administration.org/article/187/Using_iptables_to_rate-limit_incoming_connections )

on the commandline

sendcommand rwho

can also show you the active connections.

In some cases slow dns may be a problem.

Checked while the condition existed.  There were no more connections than at any other time.  DNS and reverse DNS respond as they should and quickly.  The send command rwho hangs at
sendcommand: started (pid=13450) connecting to Citadel server at /usr/local/citadel/citadel-admin.socket
 
The daemon appears to get in some sort of loop and will not respond to any sendcommand commands.

Thanks.  I'll Check it out.  I have an Iphone at the minute so I want to get the calendar and contacts from that to Citadel.  I am moving towards an Android phone.

Ideally I would like to sync my Iphone to Citadel and then have the option of using either an Iphone or Android phone with Citadel.

So my first problem is to get my data into Citadel.

Hello! It seems that when I, and my friend use chat it is slow and messages pop up one at a time. This is with both my, and other citadel installations (including this one).

Everything else is fast. Is there a way to make chat faster? This would be on a private server so spam is not a problem. Thanks! - Setra

Subject: Citadel 9.01 and active directory

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi, I am new to Citadel :-)

 

I am trying to get it to work with Active Directory but I have strange problems with some of the AD users.

Here, W2003 provides AD authentication and the idea is to move the mail from hmailserver (integrated with AD) to Debian/citadel, maintaining AD for authentication.

 

For testing purposes, Citadel 9.01 was deployed using easyinstall in a Debian 7 with SSL support and AD authentication.

Then AD users were added but there were exceptions: 

- 3 non-admin users did not have the INBOX folder available in Thunderbird. TB said it could not access the rooms

- 2 users (the citadel admin and another one) had the INBOX created twice, recursively, with the second INBOX just listing the Deleted sub folder.

 

Regarding those users with a missing INBOX in TB, I tried using webcit and checked the citadel log: the LDAP bind using the query user was OK, the LDAP search was successful but then the message "W Context: <> logged in" looked strange. And rooms were listed in the citadel log. That only happened with those 3 users. Users in AD were defined all in the same way and the AD maintenance page in W2003 showed the same attributes for the users. However, a LDAP browser showed some users had extra attributes compared to others. So, not too sure.

To me it seems citadel is expecting to receive something from AD and that does not happen, even if authentication is successful. Do I need to define any specific attributes in AD for citadel to use, something that could address message "W Context: <> logged in" ? And then enable creation/view of inboxes ?

 

Talking about that recursive INBOX, could it have anything to do with being the citadel admin ?

 

Thanks a lot, in advance, for any hint/tip you may have

Subject: "Global Address Book"

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi!

 

When logged in as the Administrator for my Citadel, I get a list of "Global Address Book" with all addresses on my local server.

However, when I asked a colleague to log in, they could not see this list, therefore were unable to send email messages to other staff on the server without typing addresses (quite annoying when wanting an email to go to all staff!)

 

Can someone please tell me how to make the "Global Address Book" available to all users, or create another list that is accessible by all users?

 

Furthermore, Can someone advise me on how to create mailing lists on this address book?

 

Thank you so much :)

Hi, uhmmm yes, Citadel does not like something in the LDAP attributes and fails silently. I tried to recreate one of the affected users in AD and citadel then welcomed the user. However, recreating AD accounts may not always be a viable option in "production". :-(

Hi,

(Not sure what happened here, but the message I posed does not show up. So, we'll do it again.)

1. Make sure citadel server is stopped before you do this and verify it with 'ps -ef|grep cit'. Because /etc/init.d/citadel stop does not work for me on Ubuntu/citadel 8.24. So, I have to actually kill the citadel server process. Else it is still running after executing the init script.

2. Rename the damaged citadel data directory (/usr/local/citadel/data on Ubuntu) to something else. You don't want ANY .log files from the damaged version to remain. So, just copy the entire data directory, including the .logs.

3. Restart the citadel server.

You will need, at the very minimum, the data/ directory along with the files citadel.config and citadel.control. Without those two additional files you will have some difficulty making the data/ backup useful.
