Unity Connection IMAP service Failing

Level 1
Level 1

Hi All,

I'm having a problem with the IMAP service failing on my Unity Connection servers, we are running version 8.5 and the problem seems to be effecting both the servers in the HA pair.

I have checked the trace files and have found that the following error, which states the ports are already in use, however this being on the Unity connection server it's self I don't see what could eb using the ports.

What specific build of 8.5?  You're likely hitting which exhibits itself in this manner.  You'll want to contact TAC for the latest ES so you can get patched for it.

Hope that helps,
