Sendmail processes not running

Hi All!

I am trying to get
Code:
sendmail

to work but unsuccessfull...when I run
Code:
ps -ef | grep sendmail
    root 10578 10561   0 11:01:24 pts/1       0:00 grep sendmail

I do not see its processes
When I run the following commands:

Code:
bash-3.00# svcs sendmail
svcs: Pattern 'sendmail' doesn't match any instances
STATE          STIME    FMRI
bash-3.00# svcs -a| grep sendmail
bash-3.00# svcadm enable sendmail
svcadm: Pattern 'sendmail' doesn't match any instances
bash-3.00#

But on a working system:

Code:
 svcs -a| grep sendmail
online         Jul_14   svc:/network/sendmail-client:default
online         Jul_14   svc:/network/smtp:sendmail

and
Code:
 ps -ef | grep sendmail
    root    698      1   0   Jul 14 ?         129:33 /usr/lib/sendmail -bl -q15m
   smmsp    699      1   0   Jul 14 ?           5:42 /usr/lib/sendmail -Ac -q15m
    root  85276  85245   0 10:44:51 pts/18      0:00 grep sendmail

Please can you help?

have you checked the logs. Try checking its status using:
Code:
/etd/init.d/sendmail status

Code:
 /etd/init.d/sendmail status
bash: /etd/init.d/sendmail: No such file or directory

and the logs:
Code:
 tail /var/adm/messages

I guess you package is broken, as because:

Code:
svcs -a | grep sendmail

should throw a result.

Can you check any update available for sendmail.

Hi

I have 1 other server and it has the same problem, so does not seem to be a problem of broken sendmail.....

Any suggestions?
