Problem after configuring the SMTP

Hi All,

I have a problem with xmanager when I open a session of my server. But the error message is appeared after I login
with root and other user and This the error message.
“ the desktop messaging system could not be started. To correct the problem Check to see that the desktop is properly
installed the hostname is correct ( /etc/hosts) and the network is properly configured.”
And this error come after I configured the server to send mail message, but I can avoid this error message when remove the DNS server IP from
/etc/resolv.conf file, and when I remove it the problem it is solved. and I am set the DNS IP in /etc/hosts file to try to solve this error but the problem is still.
Only I can solving when remove the DNS server IP from /etc/resolv.conf file and in this case the sendmail services don’t work and this error is appeared when
Using sendmail command
“Name server timeout”
#more /etc/resolv.conf
domain sp.local
nameserver 10.8.1.2
nameserver 10.8.1.3


Thanks & kind Regards

Hi Nejad,

Copy the nsswitch.files to the nsswitch.conf.

# cp /etc/nsswitch.files /etc/nsswitch.conf

If you use dns, edit the the line

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

and try again to connect to the server

Thanks,
Johnson
