I'm trying to setup sendmail in Nexenta core 3.0.1 (Solaris based OS). All I want is to be able to send emails from that host - like notifications about failures, cron jobs output etc. Initially Nexenta core doesn't have sendmail so here is what I've done:
apt-get install sunwsndmu
Now there is a sendmail in /usr/sbin/sendmail. When I try to send email from command line:
$mail maxim test .
It doesn't give me any error but in log file I see:
Dec 20 12:41:08 nas sendmail: [ID 801593 mail.info] oBKHf8u7012295: from=maxim, size=107, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201012201741.oBKHf8u7012295@nas>, relay=maxim@localhost Dec 20 12:41:08 nas sendmail: [ID 801593 mail.info] oBKHf8u7012295: to=maxim, ctladdr=maxim (1000/10), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30107, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
So I guess I need to have SMTP service running. How do I do that in Nexenta?
svcs -a | grep sendmail
doesn't return anything and
# svcadm enable sendmail svcadm: Pattern 'sendmail' doesn't match any instances
I'm not married to sendmail so if there are easier ways to achieve y goal I'm open to suggestions as well.
