How to Configure Postfix, Dovecot, Virtual Domains, Virtual Users in CentOS

Step 1: Install Postfix

Install postfix using yum command:

# yum install postfix

Step 2: Run Postfix on Multi-Levels

Make sure run the postfix on multilevels:

# chkconfig postfix on

Step 3: Modify /etc/postfix/ File

Make a copy of both these files &

# cd /etc/postfix
# cp
# cp

Edit and change the following values:

# vi /etc/postfix/
myhostname =
mydomain =
myorigin = $mydomain
inet_interfaces = all
home_mailbox = Maildir/

Step 4: Create Postfix User

Create postfix user “userpostfix” on server with login shell as /sbin/nologin

# useradd -s /sbin/nologin userpostfix

Check the UID:GUID for the userpostfix user in /etc/passwd file

# tail /etc/passwd

Step 5: Configure Virtual domain

Add the following lines at the end of and replace the UID:GUID under virtual_minimum_uid, virtual_maximum_uid, virtual_uid_maps and virtual_gid_maps

# vi /etc/postfix/
virtual_mailbox_domains = /etc/postfix/virtual_domains
virtual_mailbox_base = /var/mail/vhosts
virtual_mailbox_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/vmailbox
virtual_minimum_uid = 1001
virtual_maximum_uid = 1001
virtual_uid_maps = static:1001
virtual_gid_maps = static:1001
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

Create /etc/postfix/virtual_domains. It contains all the domains that are pointed on server.

# vi /etc/postfix/virtual_domains

Step 6: Create Mail Directories

Create the mail directory, sub directory for the domains and assign the proper permissions.

# mkdir /var/mail/vhosts
# chgrp -R userpostfix /var/mail
# cd /var/mail/vhosts
# mkdir
# mkdir
# mkdir
# cd ..
# chown -R userpostfix:userpostfix vhosts

Note: Postfix will create the “Maildir” directories automatically and assign the proper permissions.

Step 7: Create /etc/postfix/vmailbox File

Create a file /etc/postfix/vmailbox and add all of the users that will receive e-mails.

# touch /etc/postfix/vmailbox
# vi /etc/postfix/vmailbox

Note: Make sure you end up each line with “/”.
Postfix will automatically create Maildir structure (cur, new, tmp).

Step 7: Execute postmap Command

Create the hashed file (.db) using postmap command.

# postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
# postmap /etc/postfix/vmailbox

Step 8: Check postfix Status

Make sure postfix service is running fine and port 25 is opened for postfix.

# ps -eaf | grep postfix
postfix   1219  1590  0 12:05 ?        00:00:00 pickup -l -t fifo -u
root      1353 30585  0 12:06 pts/0    00:00:00 grep postfix
root      1590     1  0 Mar05 ?        00:01:03 /usr/libexec/postfix/master
postfix  23181  1590  0 Apr13 ?        00:00:07 qmgr -l -t fifo -u
# netstat -an | grep :25
tcp        0      0        *                   LISTEN
tcp        0      0 :::25                       :::*                        LISTEN
tcp        0      0 ::ffff:      ::ffff:   TIME_WAIT

Step 9: Reload postfix

Now reload the postfix service:

# service postfix reload

Step 10: Test Postfix

Test the mail using telnet command:

# telnet localhost smtp
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

Configuration script for Xymon

This script asks a few questions and builds a Makefile to compile Xymon

Checking your make-utility
Checking pre-requisites for building Xymon

Checking for fping ...
Xymon has a built-in ping utility (xymonping)
However, it is not yet fully stable and therefore it
may be best to use the external fping utility instead.
I found fping in /usr/local/sbin/fping
Do you want to use it [Y/n] ?
Checking to see if '/usr/local/sbin/fping' works ... is alive
OK, will use '/usr/local/sbin/fping' for ping tests
NOTE: If you are using an suid-root wrapper, make sure the 'xymond'
      user is also allowed to run fping without having to enter passwords.
      For 'sudo', add something like this to your 'sudoers' file:
      xymon ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/sbin/fping

Checking for PCRE ...
Compiling with PCRE library works OK
Linking with PCRE library works OK

Checking for C-ARES library ...
Compiling with c-ares library works OK
C-ARES version: Found 1.10.0 - OK, require 1.10.0
Linking with c-ares library works OK

Checking for RRDtool ...
Not RRDtool 1.0.x, checking for 1.2.x
Compiling with RRDtool works OK
Linking with RRDtool works OK

Checking for OpenSSL ...
Compiling with SSL library works OK
Linking with SSL library works OK
Checking if your SSL library has SSLv2 enabled
Will support SSLv2 when testing SSL-enabled network services

Xymon can use the OpenSSL library to test SSL-enabled services
like https-encrypted websites, POP3S, IMAPS, NNTPS and TELNETS.
If you have the OpenSSL library installed, I recommend that you enable this.

Do you want to be able to test SSL-enabled services (y) ?
Checking for LDAP ...
Compiling with LDAP works OK
LBER library not needed
Linking with LDAP works OK

Xymon can use your OpenLDAP LDAP client library to test LDAP servers.

Do you want to be able to test LDAP servers (y) ?
Checking for clock_gettime() requiring librt ...
clock_gettime() requires librt

Checking for Large File Support ...
Large File Support OK

Setting up for a Xymon server

What userid will be running Xymon [xymon] ?
Found passwd entry for user xymon:x:516:517::/home/xymon:/bin/bash

Where do you want the Xymon installation [/home/xymon] ?
OK, will configure to use /usr/local/xymon as the Xymon toplevel directory

What URL will you use for the Xymon webpages [/xymon] ?
Where to put the Xymon CGI scripts [/usr/local/xymon/cgi-bin] ?
(Note: This is the filesystem directory - we will get to the URL shortly)

What is the URL for the Xymon CGI directory [/xymon-cgi] ?
(Note: This is the URL - NOT the filesystem directory)

********************** SECURITY NOTICE ****************************
If your Xymon server is accessible by outsiders, then you should
restrict access to the CGI scripts that handle enable/disable of
hosts, and acknowledging of alerts. The easiest way to do this is
to put these in a separate CGI directory and require a password to
access them.
Even if your Xymon server is on a secured, internal network, you
may want to have some operations (like disabling a host) be password-
protected - that lets you see who disabled or acknowledged an alert.

Where to put the Xymon Administration CGI scripts [/usr/local/xymon/cgi-secure] ?
(Note: This is the filesystem directory - we will get to the URL shortly)

What is the URL for the Xymon Administration CGI directory [/xymon-seccgi] ?
(Note: This is the URL - NOT the filesystem directory)

** Note that you may need to modify your webserver configuration.
** After installing, see /usr/local/xymon/server/etc/xymon-apache.conf for an example configuration.

To generate Xymon availability reports, your webserver
must have write-access to a directory below the Xymon
top-level directory. I can set this up if you tell me
what group-ID your webserver runs with. This is typically
'nobody' or 'apache' or 'www-data'

What group-ID does your webserver use [nobody] ?

Where to put the Xymon logfiles [/var/log/xymon] ?

What is the name of this host [] ?

What is the IP-address of this host [] ?

Where should I install the Xymon man-pages (/usr/local/man) ?
Using Linux Makefile settings

Created Makefile with the necessary information to build Xymon
Some defaults are used, so do look at the Makefile before continuing.

Configuration complete - now run make (GNU make) to build the tools

Step:6 Install Xymon

Configuration is completed successfully, now execute make and make install command to install the xymon monitoring server.

# make
# make install

Step:7 Start Xymon Service

After Installation login with xymon user and start the xymon server

# su xymon
# /usr/local/xymon/server/bin/ start
Xymon started

Step:8 Concatenate Config File

Concatenate xymon-apache.conf with httpd.conf

# cat /usr/local/xymon/server/etc/xymon-apache.conf >> /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf


Case 1: Directory Path

Create a softlink in /var/www/html / where you DocumentRoot is set(by default directory is /var/www/html)

# cd /var/www/html
# ln -s /usr/local/xymon xymon

Case 2: fping permissions issue

In case you face xymongen alert just change the ownership and file permissions of fping

# chown root:xymon /usr/sbin/fping
# chmod 710 /usr/sbin/fping
# chmod ug+s /usr/sbin/fping

Order of commands matters, Linux will reset setuid bit after a chown for security reasons.
So, you must do these commands in the order defined in the manual (chown first).

How to create NFS Server in Linux


NFS (Network File Server) is used for sharing files between linux to linux, unix to linux and vice versa.

Package: nfs-utils
By Default Port: 2049
Configuration File: /etc/exports

Step 1: Install nfs package

First install nfs-utils package using following command:

# yum -y install nfs-utils

Step 2: Configuration

Edit file idmapd.conf and add the line:

# vi /etc/idmapd.conf
Domain = tecdistro-server

Insert the folder/directory along with network that you want to share it with other unix/linux machines:

# mkdir /data
# chmod a+rwx /data
# vi /etc/exports
/data *(ro)

Step 3: Start Services

Start the services rpcbind, nfslock and nfs.

# service rpcbind start
Starting rpcbind:                         [  OK  ]
# service nfslock start
Starting NFS statd:                       [  OK  ]
# service nfs start
Starting NFS services:                    [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                      [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                      [  OK  ]
Starting RPC idmapd:                      [  OK  ]

The following command is equivalent to nfs restart

# exports -ar

Run the services at startup/booting time.

# chkconfig rpcbind on
# chkconfig nfslock on
# chkconfig nfs on

Step 4: On Client Side

Now at the NFS client end, we need to mount that directory in our server to access it locally. To do so, first we need to find out that shares available on the remote server or NFS Server.

# showmount -e

Export list for

Above command shows that a directory named “data” is available at “” to share with your server.
To mount the directory from NFS server to client server use the following command:

# mount /local
