Hello,

I'm facing a problem with an exiting shepherd. From time to time I get an error in the messages file and the queue (qname S43a) goes to error-state. Are there any suggestions what "exit status 7" stands for? Is low disk space on the exec-spool-dir a possible reason? By now I could not find any hints in the OS-syslogs ...

Regards & thanks in advance
Tobias
