Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186927
sendmail 8.12.11-4.24.1.legacy does not provide /etc/pam.d/smtp
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:40:45 EDT
Description of problem:
sendmail 8.12.11-4.24.1.legacy is an upgrade offered for sendmail 8.12.8-9.90,
but it does not offer /etc/pam.d/smtp which is found in the older sendmail
package. Instead it is replaced with /etc/pam.d/smtp.sendmail but breaks smtp
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install sendmail 8.12.8-9.90
2. setup a working smtp ssl/tls authentication setup
3. upgrade to sendmail 8.12.11-4.24.1.legacy
Users trying to send mail via smtp authenticated relay will be denied access to
relay through server.
Authenticated users via smtp should be able to send outgoing mail.
As a workaround, I linked /etc/pam.d/smtp to /etc/pam.d/smtp.sendmail and smtp
authentication began to work normally again.
Thank you for reporting this bug, Stephen. We have proposed Red Hat
Linux 9 sendmail packages in QA that should fix this issue, and some
other issues as well. They are posted in Bug #186277 comment #55, and we
would welcome your QA on these packages, if you have the inclination, time
and resources to do so.
You should be able to upgrade from either sendmail-8.12.8-9.90 or
sendmail-8.12.11-4.24.1.legacy to the proposed sendmail-8.12.11-4.24.3.legacy
package (download links in Bug #186277) and the issue should be resolved
Am closing this bug as a duplicate of Bug #186277 since this issue is being
worked on there. You should automatically be added to the cc: list of that
bug as this one is closed, so you will be kept up to date on developments
and release information.
