Re: sendmail problem

Calandrello,

As i say, i think all is ok:

there are two fields that i did modify in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf:
Dj --> Dj$w.grupolala.com and
DS (for relay) --> DSmail

In /etc/hosts
200.200.22.156 mail

nslookup's output:
Using /etc/hosts on: ltrsd020

> 200.200.22.156
Using /etc/hosts on: ltrsd020

looking up FILES
Name: mail
Address: 200.200.22.156

> mail
Using /etc/hosts on: ltrsd020

looking up FILES
Name: mail
Address: 200.200.22.156

>

Any clues?
Thanks & regards

this server this deciding DNS? in the /etc/resolv.conf archive this configured the DNS server? for the error that this occurring the server nao this obtaining to find the dominio.

Re: sendmail problem

This looks like you don't have a DNS server configured in your system:

Edit /etc/resolv.conf:

domain yourdomain.com
nameserver 192.168.1.1
nameserver 192.168.1.2


Replace the address for apropiate values.

Ensure that /etc/nsswitch.conf looks like this:

hosts: dns [NOTFOUND=continue] files
ipnodes: dns [NOTFOUND=continue] files


Test a name resolution, for example:

nslookup www.hp.com
Name Server: cellmgra.sis.personal.net.py
Address: 10.129.4.226

Trying DNS
Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www.hpgtm.nsatc.net
Addresses: 192.6.234.17, 192.6.234.18
Aliases: www.hp.com


Then you can use the script:

/usr/newconfig/etc/mail/cf/cf/gen_cf

To configure sendmail
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: sendmail problem

Thank you all guys!

1. rm /etc/resolv.conf
2. vi /etc/resolv.conf
3. set the domain and nameserver params and it works!

Thanks and have a nice day!
