Post emails from RHEL media server 
Kind of a two-fold problem, but perhaps they are related...

1. Emails are coming from my user account on the box, and not root. I thought I saw somewhere where logging in as root (su -) and stopping and starting NBU would fix this problem. Didn't work for me.

2. Emails are going to an address we are trying to retire. I changed the Client Administrators Email address from the Java GUI, confirmed it was changed in bp.conf, but emails are still going to the old address.

I'm kind of at a loss. Is there someplace else where the email address is buried? Just wondering if there is something cached somewhere that's causing both the return address to show up as my account and not root, and then keep sending to the old email add. First foray into Linux, so maybe I'm missing something easy. But I've never had issues changing anything on my Unix or Windows boxes.

Thanks!

Hi,

One is in bp.conf, the other is a good question as to where its stored on disk; however the two places in jnbSA are Master Server Properties -> Global Attributes:



Then, Universal settings:



If you set these two the new address the e-mail should come from root and be sent to the place you specify above. If it doesn’t you may have something weird going on with your e-mail server.

Justin.

I opened a case with RedHat for the first issue. There recommendation was to change the way NetBackup sends so it doesn’t use mailx as the issue occurs for mailx but not for Sendmail itself. I haven’t had a chance to investigate where in NBU I’d change that. Instead I login directly as root and start NBU that way so it uses the root account.
