Tomcat sends e-mail messages to root


This might not be Goobi-related, but I don’t know yet.

Our Goobi-server sends e-mail messages from “tomcat@server” to “root@server”. The messages are lost, so we can’t check the content.

Does anyone know what kind of messages they could be and how to configure where they are sent?

Hi again,

These messages are not lost anymore, and I have a new question.

The following error message is sent as “Security information” from tomcat to root at the server.

[servername] : Oct 10 14:45:01 : tomcat : a password is required ; PWD=/var/lib/tomcat9 ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/chmod g+w /var/local/goobi-home/[username]/

Question: Why is the script running the commands as sudo, and how is it supposed to have sudo access?

Kind regards,

Follow up question:
what triggers the script
to be run?

You can read more abouthow to configure sudo for Goobi workflow in the installation instructions:

Thank you, got that part working now.

If you change the default home directory for users, the goobi sudoers file has to be changed too, of course.
