Why do I see this error ?

Post by SauDo » Wed, 16 Nov 2005 12:37:33



I see this error message everytime when I reboot server (i connected to
server via console port).

-bash-3.00# tail syslog
Nov 15 08:19:56 atlantis sendmail[314]: [ID 702911 mail.crit] My
unqualified host name (atlantis) unknown; sleeping for retry
Nov 15 08:19:56 atlantis sendmail[315]: [ID 702911 mail.crit] My
unqualified host name (atlantis) unknown; sleeping for retry
Nov 15 08:20:57 atlantis sendmail[314]: [ID 702911 mail.alert] unable
to qualify my own domain name (atlantis) -- using short name
Nov 15 08:20:57 atlantis sendmail[315]: [ID 702911 mail.alert] unable
to qualify my own domain name (atlantis) -- using short name
Nov 15 08:20:57 atlantis sendmail[600]: [ID 702911 mail.info] starting

Nov 15 08:20:57 atlantis sendmail[602]: [ID 702911 mail.info] starting

-bash-3.00#

I guess problem may be caused by sendmail deamon. I haven't touched
anything to sendmail since I installed Solaris 10 to my Sun box. What
should I do to make Sendmail work normally and I don't see this error
message again?

Thanks

Edit /etc/inet/hosts and add your FQDN to the line containing "atlantis".

Hmm, it's an unqualified hostname that sendmail can't look up, right?
So it would seem that adding the unqualified name to /etc/inet/hosts
would be the solution, instead of adding the full-qualified one.

Another possible solution, if the unqualified name exists in DNS,
is to make sure the domain name is present in /etc/resolv.conf.
For example, if the fully-qualified name is atlantis.example.com,
then "domain example.com" should be in /etc/resolv.conf; then,
when the system tries to look up "atlantis", it will first try
for "atlantis.example.com." in the DNS, and it will match.  But
if "example.com" isn't in /etc/resolv.conf, then the resolver
won't known to combine "example.com" with "atlantis", and the
lookup won't succeed.

The unqualified hostname is added to /etc/inet/hosts during the
installation.  The error is resolved trivially:

192.168.0.7     tarfu.local.tld        tarfu   loghost

Thanks all.

I can fix this error. All of you are rite, main cause is unqualified
host name. I edit /etc/hosts file like:

192.168.1.2              atlantis          atlantis.abc.com
loghost

This problem went away.

Ps: I run this command: /usr/lib/mail/sh/check-hostname and follow it's
suggestions :-)

Hi,

if You dont have a FQDN You can use something like this:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx     testserver     testserver.
                                             ^ !!!
in the /etc/hosts.

greetings,
ruediger

Hmmm, I did the same thing - now mail isn't being delivered.

Machine is just set up for internal mail at the moment, so I would
expect "mailx user" to work.  It works with the error message from
sendmail, but doesn't when the FQDN is added.

What have I missed?

        Cheers,

1. solid state "floppy" - DOS sees, linux doesn't - why?

I am playing around with a 486 system with
a "solid state" floppy drive (flash ram) that
is supposed to be "just like a regular floppy drive"
only linux 1.2.13 cannot see it (even though DOS can see it as A:)

Has anyone played around with this sort of thing and give advice
on how to make linux work with the solid state floppy?

Thanks.
