* Prior to this update, the ldap_routing feature did not work as expected. If ldap_routing was used, sendmail reported the "-T<TMPF>" option missing, and the user was required to insert "-T<TMPF>" manually. With this update, the macro for generating configuration for ldap_routing has been fixed, and the user is no longer required to add "-T<TMPF>" manually when using ldap_routing. (BZ#890227)
Description of problem:
When using LDAP-less mail routing, I noticed that m4(1) does not produce a
usable sendmail.cf file. Simply put the following into sendmail.mc:
FEATURE(`ldap_routing', `hash -o /etc/mail/transport.db', `hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db', `bounce')dnl
Afterwards try to let a new sendmail.cf produce by running m4(1).
$ make -C /etc/mail transport.db all
make: Entering directory `/etc/mail'
*** WARNING: missing -T<TMPF> in first argument of FEATURE(`ldap_routing')
*** WARNING: missing -T<TMPF> in second argument of FEATURE(`ldap_routing')
make: Leaving directory `/etc/mail'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see above and below.
LDAP-less routing is broken and thus it complains about missing -T<TMPF> all
the time. This issue is already known upstream and has been solved ages ago;
see errata section of http://www.sendmail.com/sm/open_source/download/8.14.4/
Backported patch for sendmail-8.14.4-8.el6 and updated RPM package in RHEL 6.
Yes, there is the workaround to add "-T<TMPF>" yourself, however this doesn't
seem to make much sense in LDAP-less setups.
