Re: mailserver using dfbsd
:I'm going to install dragonflybsd on two mail server proxies: primary and secondary MX with milter-greylist on.
:I need to share greylist data on both of them, I can do it using a dbms and I'll modify milter source code to store
:such data in dbms instead RAM.
:Are there more efficient features on dfbsd to share (or exchange) such greylist data from primary and secondary host?
:Best regards, \fer

I don't think you can safely update a dbms database file shared via NFS,
if that's what you intend to do.
What I recommend is that you simply make one machine the master and have
a cron job on the secondary machinepull the greylist from the primary
machine once an hour. Something like (in csh)
(cron job script on secondary machine)
rm -f greylist.new
fetch -q -o greylist.new ftp://primary.machine/hidden-location-of-greylist
if ( $status == 0 ) then
mv -f greylist.new greylist.db
# be quiet if everything succeeded so no cron mail is generated
echo "Secondary machine unable to pull greylist from primary machine"
