Problem using mail with HP-UX 11i and NIS+

Problem using mail with HP-UX 11i and NIS+

Our mail aliases are held in NIS+ (Solaris server). When using sendmail from HP-UX 11i, we get the following message:

Switch map aliases: unknown member map aliases.nisplus

nisplus is included in the aliases line in both nsswitch.conf and service.switch. However, the NIS+ aliases map is would appear to be called mail_aliases.org_dir rather than aliases.org_dir - is this the problem and if so how can it be fixed?

Re: Problem using mail with HP-UX 11i and NIS+

version of sendmail ?
patch level ?
full error mesg ?
contents of nsswitch.conf ?
improved points assignment ? ;-)


At a guess :
try this -> PHNE_25184 latest = PHNE_26305 : extract from patch text.

SR 8606189011 / CR JAGad58227:
1. In sendmail-8.9.3, an alias search using nis+ fails
due to incorrect compilation flag.
Resolution:
Sendmail-8.9.3 is now built with an appropriate
compilation flag.

There's no need to be rude about the points.

I've given the full error message.

The version of sendmail is that which comes with 11i off the CD - it has not been patched.

I'll try the patch.

I wasn't attempting to be ... it was meant as a gentle hint your profile seemed a little bit lowe ;-)


Looking forward to the feedback on the patch install results.
