Error description

  • CSSMTP health checker unnecessarily checks the directory coded
    on the DeadLetterDirectory statement with the STATVFS command
    even though DeadLetterAction is set to Delete.  It should only
    check for that directory if DeadLetterAction is set to Store.
    
    The following message would be seen when this problem occurs:
    
    ICH408I USER(CSSMTP) GROUP(GRPNAME) NAME(CSSMTP, STARTED TASK)
      /tmp/CSSMTP/DeadLetter/
      CL(DIRSRCH ) FID(00003A270000003C0000000000000000)
      INSUFFICIENT AUTHORITY TO STATVFS
      ACCESS INTENT(--X)  ACCESS ALLOWED(OTHER      ---)
      EFFECTIVE UID(0000001234)  EFFECTIVE GID(0000000123)
    

Local fix

  • .
    Define the dead letter directory in the DeadLetterDirectory
    statement or use the default name
    /var/cssmtp/extWrtName/deadletter. and set the permissions on
    the directory to 777 so that CSSMTP can issue the STATVFS
    command.

    The problem can be summarized as follows:
    1. CSSMTP was configured as follows:
         DeadLetterAction    Delete
         DeadLetterDirectory /tmp/CSSMTP/DeadLetter
    2. CSSMTP was started with a non zero UID and was not given
       access to /tmp/CSSMTP/DeadLetter/
    3. When the CSSMTP health checker process ran, it issued a
       STATVFS command to check the DeadLetterDirectory.  The
       directory did not need to be checked because the
       DeadLetterAction was Delete.
    4. Message ICH408I was issued with reason INSUFFICIENT AUTHORITY
       TO STATVFS.
