I would just like to start this post by saying IRC is useless, so lets see if you guys can be of any better use.

I just installed a postfix server on my CentOS box. Now I get this error in the logs any time something tries to connect on port 25.

CODE
Aug 17 21:36:36 localhost postfix/smtpd[2358]: fatal: SASL per-process initialization failed
Aug 17 21:36:37 localhost postfix/master[2314]: warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 2358 exit status 1
Aug 17 21:36:37 localhost postfix/master[2314]: warning: /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling


Anybody have any guesses on where I need to be looking for what to fix?

Blasphemy! *throws holy water on him*

I suppose the large IRC channels are worthless, though. wink.gif

Is this running in a chroot enviornment? (I know debian does, which can be a pain in the ass)

It might be a problem with postfix + it's version of your hosts file. (I had a similar error, and making sure my two hosts files worked fixed it).

Is this error in /var/log/mail.log? Or in another log file? mail.err might give you more information if mail.log doesn't

Does 'postfix check' come up with anything?

It's a shot in the dark, but "per-process" seems to suggest a problem with your limits.conf file (nproc).

'postfix -vv' might be helpful as well

Not going to tell us how you fixed it, in case we ever run into this exact problem? wink.gif
