Re: SMTP server



fixed

Well, just so someone browsing the archives 5 years from now doesnt get a
urge to kill me for not saying what ended up happening, 2:30hs of IPL later
and it's working as intended...

thanks all for the ideas

The machine is currently IPL'ing (looooot's of spoolfiles, 1hr aprox).
But the PTF that fixes that APAR if from 2008, in the dev partition it's
sup'ed by one installed in the lastest cumulative, but i have to assume
it's installed on the prod partition.
Will check anyways once it comes up.

Thanks!

I'll just replace the & on the english message with my values:
Message ID . . . . . . : CPFAF98 Severity . . . . . . . : 60 Message type

ID 1040c5c130805092527000000000042. The message indicates that processing
should be ended. The MSF message will be processed again the next time the
Start Mail Server Framework (STRMSF) command is used. Recovery . . . :
Determine why the exit point program indicated that processing for a

Start Mail Server Framework (STRMSF) command to start message processing
again.
It's the same as googling the error, only the message ID is different as
expected.

Best Regards,

Ending SMTP and MSF, and doing STRTCPSVR *SMTP causes this on QHST:

Trabajo 683068/QTCP/QTSMTPSRVD arrancado el 06/08/13 a las 16:32:33 en
el subsistema QSYSWRK en QSYS. Trabajo introducido en el sistema el
06/08/13 a las 16:32:33 Trabajo 683068/QTCP/QTSMTPSRVD finalizado el
06/08/13 a las 16:32:34; se utilizaron 1 segundos, codigo de
finalizacion 0

That last one, expanded says:

Causa . . . . . . : El trabajo 683068/QTCP/QTSMTPSRVD se ha completado
el
06/08/13 a las 16:32:34 despues de utilizar un tiempo de unidad de
proceso de 1 segundos. El trabajo tuvo el codigo de finalizacion 0. El
trabajo finalizo despues de 1 pasos de direccionamiento con un codigo
de finalizacion secundario 0. Los codigos de finalizacion de trabajo y
sus significados son los siguientes:
0 - El trabajo completo normalmente
-------------------------------------------
and it goes on explaining the exit codes, but since both are 0 i dont
think i need to paste them, do i?
Doing a DSPJOBLOG on that job brings me only .. (two dots) as the
joblog, doing F1 on that brings me the user that ran the strtcpsvr,
time and etc but the same two dots as the message.

I'm rather fond of the linux-habit of being extremely verbose on the
logs, and IBM i has always done that, it's the first time i see an
empty message like that...

Best Regards,

No antivirus, and ASP was recently expanded and is just at 69,29% In
fact, MSF seems to work (it has it's 3 jobs running), it's just that
the QTSMTPCLTd and QTSMTPSRVd jobs are NOT running and wont start
with strtcpsvr *smtp.
Just logged into the dev partition (last PTF install, a month ago)
and it has both jobs running on qsyswrk.

Hi all,

I haven't configured smtp server on IBM i yet (i prefer to dabble
with VIOS and Dual VIOS yet) so i dont know how a working smtp/msf
enviroment looks like. But... on an already working and heavely
used smtp/msf system, suddenly smtp doesnt start. MSF does but a
test snddst mail (that on the joblog appears as sent) creates
CPFAF98 errors on qhst.
I've tried stopping MSF, stopping the SMTP server (not that it's
running) and then:
strtcpsvr *smtp
strmsf *reset
But netstat confirms that nothing is listening. Also, QTSMTPSRVD
(which i assume is the smtp daemon) starts and ends with a joblog
that consist of ".."
In a few hours i get the machine and i'll do what i shouldn't have
to do, IPL.
System is v5r4 last updated somewhere last year, i'm waiting to
install ptfs on it, but if it was working until yesterday i doubt
it's PTF related.
Any tips regarding this (besides, stop using it and migrate to one
of the various free alternatives, which i've peddled here already)
is
welcome.

Thanks!
