Setting Up a Virtual Host

If you need to assign more than one IP address to a host, see this Web site: This site provides complete instructions about how to use sendmail to set up a virtual host. However, in the “Sendmail Configuration” section, do not perform step 3b, as shown in the following.

# cd sendmail-VERSION/cf/cf
# ./Build
# cp /etc/mail/

Instead, for the Solaris operating system, perform the following steps.

# cd /etc/mail/cf/cf
# /usr/ccs/bin/make
# cp /etc/mail/

Use the name of the .cf file.

Changing the sendmail Configuration outlines the same three steps as part of the build process.

After you have generated your /etc/mail/ file, you can continue with the next steps to create a virtual user table.
