Q: aliases file unsafe

Q: aliases file unsafe

Post by Norbert Grundman » Sat, 25 Apr 1998 04:00:00



Hello,

i have a problem with one host.  The aliases
are not build correctly.  That means, entering
newaliases prints:

        dbm map "Alias0": unsafe map file /etc/mail/aliases: Permission denied
        WARNING: cannot open alias database /etc/mail/aliases
        Cannot create database for alias file /etc/mail/aliases: No such device

What does this mean?  The directory and the files
have the correct permissions, owners and groups.
Stopping and starting sendmail just prints (in /var/log/syslog):


        sendmail[5318]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): dbm map "Alias0": unsafe map
file /etc/mail/aliases
        sendmail[5315]: unable to write /etc/mail/sendmail.pid

What is an unsafe file?  Where is the error?

Thanks for any help, N. Grundmann

the correct answer should be that sendmail is unable to create dbm from text
file. touch /etc/mail/aliases.dir /etc/mail/aliases.pag and enter
newaliases command.
