newbie: sendmail 8.8. and digital unix 4.0.D

Post by Jean-Marc Pouchoulo » Fri, 09 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I try to install sendmail 8.8. on digital unix 4.0.D. The install looks good
?( except this message
Warning: .cf version level (8) exceeds sendmail version 8.8.8 functionality
(7) when I tape sendmail ).
I am not able to launch sendmail with bd option ( I've got the warning and i
can't see any process).
If I use the other name of sendmail smtpd, I can see a daemon name Accept
but I can't connect to the
machine on port 25 via telnet.
Thank you for your help.

1. Question on for Ver8.8.8

        The environment Sparc 20 running Solaris 2.5.1 and Sendmail Ver 8.8.8.
The question I have is how can I tell sendmail through to look
at the local /etc/hosts file first for any entry and not the DNS.
The entry in /etc/nsswitch.conf file looks something like this.
hosts   files dns
The ResolverOptions I have in the is as follows.
The only way I can make the sendmail to look at the /etc/hosts file is by
editing the /etc/nsswitch.conf file and editing the entry for hosts to
hosts   files.
But I would be needing the dns support to. I am pretty sure there should be
some way of telling the sendmail through to look at the
/etc/hosts file first and then go to the DNS.
Any suggestions or help in this regard would be appreciated. You could post
