Sun Java System Communications Services 2005Q4 Release Notes

Additional Software Requirements

A high quality caching DNS server on the local network is a requirement for a production deployment of Messaging Server. Messaging Server depends heavily on the responsiveness and scalability of the DNS server.

Additionally, ensure in your setup that DNS is properly configured and that it is clearly specified how to route to hosts that are not on the local subnet:

If your Internet host table in your /etc/hosts file looks like:

123.456.78.910 budgie loghost mailhost


change it so that there is only one line for the IP address of the host. Be sure the first host name is a fully qualified domain name. For example:

123.456.78.910 budgie loghost mailhost
