The solution to the error “0x80070005 – Access is denied”

Installed somehow Visual C++ for Visual Studio 2013 (vcredist_x86, vcredist_x64) and noticed the error “0x80070005 – Access is denied”.

In my case, this error occurred because the ESET NOD32 Smart Security antivirus blocked access to some files and directories in the system.
Its disconnection did not give a result, so a quick solution to the problem was the removal of the antivirus, after which the error ceased to be displayed.

The solution to the error “ImportError: No module named ldap”

Installed iRedMail on Ubuntu Server in February 2016 and noticed an error when trying to send a message via Roundcube:

SMTP error (451): Unable to add recipient “Email” (4.3.5 Server configuration problem)

I checked if iredapd is running:

telnet localhost 7777

It turned out that it was not running because the response from telnet was displayed:

Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Tried to run:

sudo /etc/init.d/iredapd start

To which he received the answer:

ImportError: No module named ldap

I installed the module with the command:

sudo apt-get install python-ldap

Execute the commands:

sudo -i
cd /opt/iredapd/
find . -name '*pyc' | xargs rm -f {}

Now restart the service:

sudo service iredapd restart

Done, there is no error.
