I trying to get an email server up and running on a raspberry pi running Raspbian Buster.
In my postfix checks I am getting a strange notification about a symlink that I definitely did not create myself. The warning is
postfix/postfix-script: warning: symlink leaves directory: /etc/postfix/./makedefs.out
I have done two clean installs thinking it might be malicious, and every time it comes back, so I am assuming it is somehow part of the configuration or has something specifically to do wiht the postfix version on raspberry pi.
In any event, the following message appears when running my postfix check:
sudo postfix check postfix: Postfix is running with backwards-compatible default settings postfix: See http://www.postfix.org/COMPATIBILITY_README.html for details postfix: To disable backwards compatibility use "postconf compatibility_level=2" and "postfix reload" postfix/postfix-script: warning: symlink leaves directory: /etc/postfix/./makedefs.out
- Does anyone have any idea what exactly this symlink is doing and who/what is creating it?
- Is it something to worry about and
- How do I get rid of this error message in my postfix check?
/etc/postfix/makedefs.out -> /usr/share/postfix/makedefs.out. As a comment in this file states this file documents how Postfix was built for your machine and contains what looks indeed like a config how to build postfix. Not sure for what it is needed, though.
