Hey for some reason I think I deleted a critical file for sendmail. I was looking the log file on /var/log/cron for cron, and the file isn't there and I found out the reason why is because I'm missing Im running Solaris 11.

I checked smtp and got the following:


#svcs -xv /network/smtp

     svc:/network/smtp:sendmail (sendmail SMTP mail transfer agent)

      State: maintenance since August  8, 2013 09:10:06 AM EDT

     Reason: Restarting too quickly.


     See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M sendmail

    See: /var/svc/log/network-smtp:sendmail.log

    Impact: This service is not running


I think I'd have to re install it/ I'm afraid this will cause more problems with log files that are needed. If anyone can guide me in how to reinstall this or restore that library I will really appreciate it. I really need the cron log files


thank you in advance
