Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53513
Problem with the RPM installation script as well as the new /etc/sendmail.cf
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:00 EDT
Problem Description: The installation script creates "sendmail.cf" as "sendmail.cf.repnew", but the new version of sendmail uses /etc/mail/local-host-names in stead of /etc/sendmail.cw.
the old sendmail.cf tells sendmail to look for sendmail.cw, that file is renamed to sendmail.ce.rpmorig by the script. sendmail can't find sendmail.cw and fails to start. This can be fixed by edit the sendmail.cf or rename sendmail.cw.rpmorig back to the old name.
Howerer, there is another problem. If we replace the old .cf file with the new one, sendmail will start, but it only accept local connection, it is not listen to any remote connection. so far i haven't been able to figure out the cause, but i assume it has to do with the new .cf file, since the old .cf file works just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. replace old .cf with new .cf.
Actual Results: sendmail will not accept any inbound mail.
Updated rpms again allow network connections by default and the post script
takes care about the sendmail.cw conversion from older releases.
