Sendmail quits working when NS1 locks up
Posted on 2004-04-27
We have had problems keeping our name server up and running (intel box..running Redhat 8) so our provider of our T1 lines is doing our dns. How can I take our name server offline without shutting down Sendmail? Sendmail is running on a Sun E-450 with Solaris 8 and even now if the name server locks up then Sendmail quits. I would like to be able to disconnect the bad Intel box but can't due to Sendmail quitting on the Sun Box. Is there a list of files on the Solaris unit I can edit with the new dns info and take the old out? This was configured by another person who is gone now,and we're left without knowing hardly anything about Solaris or Redhat.
