Make sendmail on Solaris 10 listen to more than localhost

I was just installing a new sendmail server and once again stumbled across the default solaris config that will only bind this service to localhost. I knew this could be fixed somewhere in the svc properties but since this is not my daily cup of tea, I had to google this and it took me a few minutes. Anyway, this is what I came up with:

svccfg -v -s sendmail setprop config/local_only=false
svcadm refresh sendmail
svcadm restart sendmail

I found it at this blog.

  1. Thx! All the other posts I read missed the “Refresh” step, and that was needed to make this happen!
    It’s nice that we can find so much via google search.. to bad so many people post incomplete solutions! Thx for being exact in your reporting ;)
