SMTP Port 25 not getting activated

Hi Experts,

SMTP Port 25 is not getting activated. I have gone through the note 2089881.

I get below error for ports 25, 25000 and 25001.

Permissions for icmnbd are: 4750 (-rwsr-x---)

[Thr 140489157240576] *** ERROR => IcmBindService: You might not have the permissions to bind the service:

<hostname>:25 [icxxserv.c 3843]

[Thr 140489157240576] Started service HOST=

<hostname>,PORT=25001,PROT=SMTP,TIMEOUT=120,PROCTIMEOUT=1000

Please advice.

Thanks,

Asad

    Hi,

    The ownership of icmnbd should be root.

    Try the below command

    root> cd /usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run

    root> chown root:sapsys icmbnd

    root> chmod 4750 icmbnd

    root> cd /usr/sap/SID/<Instance>/exe (for example <Instance>=DVEBMGS00)

    root> chown root:sapsys icmbnd

    root> chmod 4750 icmbnd

    Stopsap and start it, Now try activating the SMICM.

    Hello,

    NIEMYHOST_VERIFY

    Confirm that the hostname used at the parameter "icm/server_port_X = HOST=<hostname>,PORT=25,PROT=SMTP, ..." is correct / a local hostname.

    That error keyword is usually related to the hostname not being local, so the ICM cannot bind to the IP address of that host.

    Regards,
