I have cyrus-imap running on a centos 7 (64-bit) system in a xen guest.
As to completely breaks - I have limited my tests so far to the querying
subcommands such as server, info and lm.
I'm connecting using
# cyradm --user cyrus-admin localhost
which shows this prompt after successful password entry:
First command I try is 'lm':
This successfully returns a long list of mailboxes on this server.
Next I run the 'info' command:
This returns to the prompt without any other information printed. Now I
run lm again:
This command now also returns to the prompt without any other
information printed. Yet its first incantation before the info command
was run did return a long list of mailboxes.
I finish the sessions with 'quit', which still works fine.
So 'completely broken' is perhaps not the best way to call this. I can't
sensibly use the info command however. It doesn't return any info and
afterwards lm no longer works.
So what would be going on here ? Should I find log traces of this
session somewhere I can consult ?
