Hello David, the problem is quite simple.
You've configured the script to use the sendmail program, but my
script uses the sendEmail executable (note the capital "E" in the
name), which is a completely different thing.
sendEmail (with the capital 'E') is a perl script which is used to
send email from a command line interface, for example from a bash
You can get the script from the developer's home page:
I usually use the binary generic version and download it in /usr/local/
Then I decompress it with this command:
tar -zxvf sendEmail-v1.55.tar.gz
Then I copy the "sendEmail" executable from /usr/local/src/sendEmail-
v1.55 to /usr/bin/sendEmail
cp /usr/local/src/sendEmail-v1.55/sendEmail /usr/bin/sendEmail
To verify if it works, you can simply type "sendEmail" at the console
and you should get the program's usage instructions.
If you get to this point then you only have to put the right path in
the backup_vmware script, which is done by setting the SENDEMAIL
The right setting, if you put the sendEmail executable into /usr/bin,
Please let me know if you have further problems!
