Recently, I upgraded a Dell 2650 server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux
(RHEL) 3 Update 1 to RHEL 3 Update 2 via yum 1.0.3.
Upon reboot, however, I found that /usr/lib/sendmail was renamed to
/usr/lib/sendmail.sendmail. This caused some cron jobs
that utilize sendmail to break; I resolved by relinking the rogue link
back to /usr/lib/sendmail.
Does this issue have anything to do with yum, the sendmail RPM on RHEL 3
Update 2, or the version of RPM in use on the server before the upgrade
(rpm-4.0.4-7x.20.i386.rpm)? I checked yum's Bugzilla database but found
nothing on RHEL or any issues regarding updates or (in my case) upgrades
via yum 1.0.3.
Thank you for your assistance. I will summarize any replies I receive.
