Details

Ensim Webppliance for Linux (RHEL and Fedora Core 1)

Product: Ensim Pro and Basic for Linux

Platform: SSH Only
Version: 4.0.1
Date: 10/14/04 
Patch Description :This is a hot fix that resolves the following issue: "saslauthd daemon requires frequent restart for smtp auth to work"

Download :

For RHEL: libsasl_fixup.so 

For Fedora Core 1: libsasl_fixup.so

Installation: 

To apply this hot fix, do the following:

1. Download the appropriate libsasl_fixup.so library file to your WEBppliance
2. Copy the module to /lib/libsasl_fixup.so
3. Change the ownership and permissions of the file by :

#chown root.root /lib/libsasl_fixup.so

# chmod o+s /lib/libsasl_fixup.so

4. Restart  sendmail where this library is supposed to be pre-loaded.

 

On RHEL 4.0.1-9 This library is not preloaded in to sendmail

1. Open /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail in vi
2. Look for the section which looks like this:

if rpm -qf /etc/redhat-release | grep -i fedora >/dev/null 2>&1; then
# Only fixup the username when talking to saslauthd, which
# is no longer used on RHEL for sendmail.
preload_libs="$preload_libs libsasl_fixup.so"
fi
Comment out the 'if' and 'fi' parts so that libary gets preloaded on RHEL as well.
#if rpm -qf /etc/redhat-release | grep -i fedora >/dev/null 2>&1; then
# Only fixup the username when talking to saslauthd, which
# is no longer used on RHEL for sendmail.
preload_libs="$preload_libs libsasl_fixup.so"
#fi

3. Restart  sendmail.
