Thread: opensuse 12.1 - dual sendmail service start

    Question opensuse 12.1 - dual sendmail service start

    Hi there!

    A bit of a background: I am running an opensuse 11.3 box for fetching mails, scanning them for viruses and spam with amavis and deliver them to the user mailboxes in a dual sendmail daemon configuration: fetchmail -> sendmail-1 -> amavis -> sendmail-2 -> Exchange. Everything is just working fine there...

    I want to migrate to opensuse 12.1 and I just can't find out how to configure the system scripts start for a dual sendmail daemon. Now everything will be sent to systemctl and I'm just stuck...

    Is there anyone out there being able to give me a hint?

    Thank you very much in advance!
    Luca

    My guess is that you're going to have to post something more detailed to see what you've tried or considered and more concretely what you're trying to accomplish.

    There is some documentation starting with what is in the 12.1 Release Notes, there are systemctl MAN pages, and I suspect that there might even be sample scripts on the Internet for exactly what you're trying to do (again, need specifics).

    HTH,

    ... i thought it was specific... i need sendmail to start twice: one daemon listening on port 25 and one on port 10025. I use a mavis in between listening on port 10024. So: sendmail_25 receives the mail, delivers it to amavis_10024 which delivers it to sendmail_10025, which sends the mails to the mailbox.
    I need to start two sendmail daemons, as simple as that...

    Cheers,

    Wow, back from 2012.

    Well, I do that with postfix, a single postfix, no need for two. Sorry,
    I stopped using sendmail about a decade ago. I can't help you with that.

    Besides, if you are still using 12.1, that one is out of maintenance.
    You have to install 13.1 now.

    I guess you would have to edit your own service scripts to start two
    daemons. I don't have any sendmail installed to even think out what file
    to edit, sorry.

    I just realized that I had not switched on the notifications... :-(

    anyway, I want to install 13.1 and if I was able to uninstall the package systemd-sysvinit and install sysvinit-init everything would be fine (I was able to do this on 12.2), but 13.1 complains...

    I was thinking about installing postfix, but i have no idea how to configure it...

    Thanks anyway!

    heh. :-)

    And even if you had, I heard they did not work till recently.

    (I do not use the web forum, I contact via nntp instead).

    No, that package is just a compatibility layer, it does not contain
    systemv. You can not have the old sysinit any longer.

    It is far easier than sendmail, but of course, it is different.


    I do not know if there is another method to use amavis with sendmail
    than having two daemons. :-?
