Verifying sendmail on Linux

Verifying sendmail on Linux

The PowerCenter Integration Service uses sendmail to send email on Linux. Before you configure email in a session or workflow, verify that the sendmail tool is accessible on the Linux machines.
  1. Log in to the Linux machine as the PowerCenter user who starts the Informatica services.
  2. Add
    /usr/sbin
    to the $PATH environment variable to send emails.
  3. Type the following line at the prompt and press Enter:
    sendmail <your fully qualified email address>,<second fully qualified email address>
  4. To indicate the end of the message, enter a period (.) on a separate line and press Enter. Or, type
    ^D
    .
    You should receive a blank email from the email account of the PowerCenter user. If not, find the directory where sendmail resides and add that directory to the path.
