FC9 : Sendmail : /var/log/maillog not updating
 
Hi,

I have just installed FC9.
Sendmail is working fine.

But there are no logs in /var/log/maillog

Any idea what could be incorrectly configured ?

Please help!

Thx
Vai

What's in your /etc/syslog.conf?

I do not have this file!!!!

Code:

[root@server /]# vi /etc/sys
sysconfig/          sysctl.conf        system-release      system-release-cpe

I have these:

Code:

[root@server /]# locate syslog.conf
/etc/rsyslog.conf
/usr/share/doc/sudo-1.6.9p13/sample.syslog.conf
/usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logfiles/syslog.conf
/usr/share/man/man5/rsyslog.conf.5.gz

Which one should I look for sendmail log setup ??

Thx

Taking cue from your message, I did some digging around found that my "rsyslog" service was stopped (unchecked in setup)
I ticked "rsyslog" and rebooted the server and the logs are showing up now.

Thx for your pointer, appreciate it.

regards,
vai

Cool. Sometimes all you need is a prompt to get things going.

Cheers
