I am staring at the script and the deployment page on the website,
and I'm a bit confused about the mailscanner restart/reload in the
The script has:
my $mailscanner_restart = '/sbin/service MailScanner reload';
Since I'm on Solaris, I'm looking at my own home-cooked init script,
and a "reload" means "send HUP signal to the process group leader or
oldest MailScanner process".
But the deployment webpage says that the script needs to do a restart
(ie send ordinary kill signal to process leader, wait for all processes
to die, start fresh). I had to modify my init script to get a "restart"
So... The comments in the script itself seem misleading. HUP or restart?
