    Default [SOLVED] Logwatch & Debian

    Hello,


    I have Zimbra setup for two domains with about 30 users currently. Before Zimbra, i used logwatch to email me daily with log reports. As of now i can no longer receive these emails. I have read different posts with different fixes, but I had really rather not experiment with these fixes on a production machine. Has any one, running debian etch, successfully setup logwatch to email them? If so, what were the steps that you took?

    Thanks!

    So does this mean no one has this working?

    My Debian system is very short on RAM so I've shutdown the logger service, so it's tricky for me to check this one.

    However, to cover some basic ground, try running this as the zimbra user:
    Code:
    zmlocalconfig | grep smtp_destination
    That will show where the log is being mailed to, if anywhere. If there's an address in there, is it what you expected it to be?

    EDIT:
    Hang on, I just re-read your post, when you say 'logwatch' are you refering to the log section of Zimbra, or a third party app ?

    I am referring to a third part app. I use it to parse ALL log files and send me a report. Before using Zimbra (just postfix + courrier) It worked wonderfully.

    Don't know if Dirk has permissions to mark as solved yet-so doing it for him.
