Re: Sendmail smarthost with Authentication

I thought sendmail was supposed to make its own maps on the fly if you let it. Otherwise, make it however, then chown it to smmsp and fix the permissions.

no, sendmail will not automagically make any maps.

I'm curious as the the extant permissions of the source and .db files the original poster has - something seems amiss!

you might be able to get by by using the -s flag to makemap (ignore safety checks).

Otherwise, you'll wind up chown;makemap;chown

I tried removing the client-info.db file and letiing sendmail create it... but still get the the unsafe map file error.

I have already chown'ed client-info and client-info.db to smmsp.root as well as the auth directory.

The real question is what should the permissions be set to on the auth directory and the client-info file and client-info.db file after I makemap the db.
