Postfix unsupported dictionary type: dev

Post by kbocek » 2019/08/22 17:56:28

I'm going through hell trying to get TLS working with Postfix on Centos 6.

My main.cf has:

Code: Select all

tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
But restarting postfix yields:

Code: Select all

postfix/smtpd[14731]: fatal: unsupported dictionary type: dev
postconf -m:

Code: Select all

$postconf -m
btree
cidr
environ
hash
ldap
mysql
nis
pcre
proxy
regexp
static
unix
Do I neeed to fix this?

Code: Select all

[root@c6test ~]# postconf -d | grep tls_ran
tls_random_bytes = 32
tls_random_exchange_name = ${data_directory}/prng_exch
tls_random_prng_update_period = 3600s
tls_random_reseed_period = 3600s
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
So, it's already the default value and you don't need to specify it.
