    Hi,

    I want to know your method for updatading a debian postfix install with VDA patch.

    There is another solution of :
    - knowing the postfix version to upgrade
    - stop postfix
    - apt-get upgrade of postfix
    - find the right patch
    - apply this to postfix
    - restart

    I think that is very boring to do this in production server because of the interruption of service.

    Anyone have another idea ?

    Jey

    You'd have to find the latest Debian source package for Psotfix and then compile it as shown in the tutorial. I'd restart Postfix only after you've installed the newly compiled Postfix package - that way there's an interruption of only 2 or 3 seconds. :)

    Thanks !

    I know that my problem is when I launch apt-get upgrade the postfix bin packet is in the list...
    I thing that i must uninstall this bin packet before.

    Sorry for the double post. My session was expired and I force the post to upload with a refresh...

    Thanks again.
