How to Fix Error code: service.FAILURE Method: [unknown] Details:soap:Receiver in Zimbra

Sep 9th, 2014 | By | Category: Linux / Freebsd, Random Musings

Finally solved this issue so figured I’d share.  For me it was because I had the zimbra user’s shell set to /usr/sbin/nologin when it needed to be /bin/sh

Also if you don’t have openSSH installed you’re going to need that running

    Hi, can you tell me in more details what did you do in order to solve it, because i m kinda newbie on this.

    Thanks in advance

    Just edit your /etc/passwd file and change the shell for that user.. That’s what I did although I’m sure there are more than one reason for this error and more than one solution

    hi min,

    is it :
    sshd:x:109:66633::/var/run/sshd:/usr/sbin/nologin that change into sshd:x:109:66633::/var/run/sshd:/usr/bin/’sh

    is this how to change it..?

    thank you.
