Patch Installation Instructions:
Please refer to the man pages for instructions on using 'patchadd'
and 'patchrm' commands provided with Solaris.
The following example installs a patch to a standalone machine:
       example# patchadd /var/spool/patch/123456-07
The following example removes a patch from a standalone system:
       example# patchrm 123456-07
For additional examples please see the appropriate man pages. Any
other special or non-generic installation instructions should be
described below as special instructions.

Special Install Instructions:

NOTE 1:  This sendmail patch will modify the config/local_only property to true,
         $ svcprop -p config/local_only smtp:sendmail

      This will allow sendmail to accept requests *only* from the localhost.
      If you require sendmail to accept requests from other hosts after adding
      this patch, you will need to:
      - reset config/local_only property to false
      - refresh & restart the sendmail service (smtp:sendmail).
      by executing the following commands as privileged user:
         # svccfg -s svc:/network/smtp:sendmail setprop config/local_only=false
         # svcadm refresh smtp:sendmail
         # svcadm restart smtp:sendmail

      Any further application of the sendmail patch will not require the above

NOTE 1: All sendmail processes were formerly managed under a single SMF service
      (svc:/network/smtp:sendmail).  In order to better track the need for
      processes to be restarted, there are now two services; 
      svc:/network/smtp:sendmail to manage the daemon for in-bound mail and 
      svc:/network/sendmail-client:default to manage out-bound mail.
      The new service svc:/network/sendmail-client:default will be enabled by
      default on installation of this patch.
      If you have previously disabled the old sendmail service, then you will 
      probably want to manually disable the new service.

NOTE 2: This patch delivers a new version of the sendmail.cf file. The previous
      version of sendmail.cf on the system will be backed up as sendmail.cf.old.
      If you have made changes to the default sendmail configuration you must make
      these changes again using the supported mechanism (i.e. by making configuration
      changes through the 'sendmail.mc' file and NOT directly editing or replacing
      sendmail.cf), as outlined in the sendmail(4) man page.
