[SOLVED] Fatal/Warning in journalctl -xe

Hi,

I found these in console:
Code:
Dec 21 07:39:04 node03-sxb-pve01 postfix/pickup[2353]: fatal: config variable inet_interfaces: host not found: ipv4

Dec 21 07:39:05 node03-sxb-pve01 postfix/master[2302]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/sbin/pickup pid 2353 exit status 1

Dec 21 07:39:05 node03-sxb-pve01 postfix/master[2302]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/sbin/pickup: bad command startup -- throttling

I received this on all my servers, never touched anything related to postfix or the ips can someone help to avoid such errors? OR what is causing them?

Regards
Cosmic

Check your /etc/postfix/main.cnf and if you see any disk errors. Did you run updates shortly before the message showed up?

I have in main.cf only these lines that relates to the errors, like I said upgrades were done prior to one day, and I havent changed anything in configs of postfix.

Code:
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8 [::ffff:127.0.0.0]/104 [::1]/128
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = ipv4

According to the error:
Code:
Dec 21 07:39:04 node03-sxb-pve01 postfix/pickup[2353]: fatal: config variable inet_interfaces: host not found: ipv4
This is something to look into, yet I am not sure what better value I can have in main.cf.

I think it helped since I did not received the errors anymore. Thank you Alwin!
