  • Exim error exim dead but subsys locked.

    Sometimes when exim service go down, and if you are trying to restart the exim it do not come up and gives you below error:

    --------------------------
    # service exim status
    exim dead but subsys locked
    --------------------------


    Now even if you try to start the exim service many times and check the status, you will still see the status as above i.e "exim dead but subsys locked"

    So now to resolve the issue do below steps:

    Copy or take the backup of file /etc/eximdisable and delete it.
    --------------------------
    # /etc/eximdisable /etc/eximdisable-BAK
    # rm -f /etc/eximdisable
    --------------------------

    Now try to restart the exim services with below command and you will see the exim will start without any issues.
    --------------------------
    # /etc/init.d/exim restart
    --------------------------


    Cheers!!!
    NOTE: Perform above steps on VPS or Deicated servers.
