Exim Error: Ratelimit database not available


Problem :

Exim generating following error logs in /var/log/exim_mainlog :

=======================================================

2010-03-17 11:31:43 H=xxxx.xxxx.xxxx [xxx.xxx.xxx.xx] temporarily rejected connection in “connect” ACL: ratelimit database not available

2010-03-17 11:31:43 H=xxxx.xxxx.xxxx [xxx.xxx.xxx.xx] temporarily rejected connection in “connect” ACL: ratelimit database not available

=======================================================

Cause :

The cause for the issue is exim cache database might be corrupted.

Resolution :

To fix such an error , the exim cache database on the server needs to be clear off to stop this message(Exim rebuilds this database again after restart)

To remove please go through the following command  on root:

# root@test[~]# rm -fv /var/spool/exim/db/*

Then run the following command on root:

# root@test [~]# /etc/init.d/exim restart

Then check again exim_mainlog for the result.
