Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

MS 7u4-24.01(7.0.4.24.0) 64bit (built Jan 3 2012)

After making a configuration change for the Messaging Server to switch from one 3rd party authentication server to another authentication server, we're seeing lots of tcp_smtp_server processes crashing and dumping cores.

Changes

Changed the following configutil parameters:

sasl.default.authenticationserver value from 'host1-msauth:56' to 'host2-msauth:56' 

sasl.default.requireauthenticationserver from '1' to '0'

For more information on the above parameters, see Third-Party Authentication Server Support.
