Postfix not starting

    Hello, back again with problems after updates..

    On a stable centos 5.4, running ispconfig 3.0.2.1:
    -I updated the system with yum update --exclude="postfix" --disablerepo=kbs-CentOS-Testing
    -I did a freshclam after removing the duplicated files (i saw the error during the update)
    -I updated ispconfig to 3.0.2.2, using all default options.
    -I ran sa-update

    I have tried all of these steps in many different orders, rebooting very often. In this order I am near to a stable system again. However, postfix will not run. When I start postfix by hand, it does work. Updating ispconfig first and then running yum for instance, results in an unusable system.

    I'll include a piece of maillog after i ran /etc/postfix start (before that there's only pop3d entries)
    I suspect it has something to do with the following line:
    Jul 29 16:52:18 mf-vm-deepspace2 amavis[2324]: (02324-01) (!!)WARN: all primary virus scanners failed, considering backups

    but I don't know what to do about it, as I already tried sa-update. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks a lot!

    According to this log, postfix is running. Please restart postfix, if it failed, post the log entrys that have been added to the mail log.

    This order does not work as yum overwrites the configuration and makes the system unusable. The other way, updating centos first and then ispconfig works as ispconfig trys to repair the files that yum has overwritten.

    Logfile

    I am sorry i misinterpreted your reply, so my reply is kind ofuseless.

    However it does show what happens before postfix is started.
    The log above is what happens after I start postfix.

    when i restart postfix i get a fail and an ok, after that the system runs fine. No errors in the log, only what I posted above. Could it be something to do with amavis?

    Here's maillog after a reboot:
    at 18:05:38 (server time) I sent a message, it never arrived.

    Postfix running

    I realize it was just a matter of postfix not being set to start at boot. Was it the yum update that disabled it then, I wonder.

    I am also still worried about the amisvd error message, or is this not a problem?

    This fixed the problem for me:
    [root@mf-vm- init.d]# chkconfig postfix --list
    service postfix supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add postfix')
    [root@mf-vm- init.d]# chkconfig --add postfix
    [root@mf-vm- init.d]# chkconfig postfix --list
    postfix 0 : off 1 : off 2 : on 3 : on 4 : on 5 : on 6 : off
    [root@mf-vm- init.d]# reboot

    Yes, thats yum. ISPConfig is not able to enable or disable the startup of postfix.

    Regarding the amavisd error, run these commands (see perfect server guide):

    Code:
    mkdir /var/run/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd/tmp /var/spool/amavisd/db
    chown amavis /var/run/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd/tmp /var/spool/amavisd/db
    ln -s /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock

    I see, so the following,
    Code:
    yum update --exclude="postfix" --disablerepo=kbs-CentOS-Testing
    
    ,is not sufficient for preventing yum to keep it's hands off of postfix. Is there a way of finding out what update caused postfix to be turned off? So I can try to prevent this from happening again?

    Thanks

    Maybe a CentOS dev can help you with that. I'am not that familar with the details of yum. Centos is causing me too much problems when you install updates, so I use only Debian for my production systems.
