Problemas al arrancar el servidor SMTP en iSeries/AS400.

Ya son varias las veces que me he encontrado con el problema de que el día menos pensado no puedo arrancar el servidor SMTP del iSeries ó AS400 (como a mí me gusta llamarlo).

Estamos dando por hecho que el iSeries ó AS400 está bien configurado y el problema se produce de forma inesperada. La configuración del AS400 para enviar email ya la comentamos en el post correspondiente: 

Los motivos pueden ser diversos y no es el objetivo de este post analizarlos, sino otro bien distinto: anotar la secuencia de comandos que en la mayoría de las ocasiones nos permitirá restaurar el servidor SMTP.

Los trabajos de SMTP se ejecutan en el subsistema QSYSWRK, por lo que una visión a los trabajos de este subsistema (WRKSBSJOB SBS(QSYSWRK)) nos puede ayudar a familiarizarnos con ellos. Concretamente, los trabajos de SMTP son los que comienzan por QTSMTP* (también pueden verse con el iNavigator):

Ventana del iNavigator donde podemos ver los trabajos ordenados por cualquier columna
Los pasos a seguir son los siguientes (yo además recomiendo ir controlando en las anotaciones del trabajo y de la QSYSOPR que los mandatos van procesandose de forma correcta antes de seguir con el siguiente mandato en la lista):
    • Finalizar Infraestructura de Servidor de Correo en el subsistema de trabajos del sistema (QSYSWRK).
    • Finalizar el servidor SMTP. Si ya está finalizado, que será lo normal si no te arranca, no pasará nada.
    • Finalizar los trabajos de prearranque del servidor SMTP.
    • Arrancar el servidor SMTP.
    • Arrancar Infraestructura del Servidor de Correo
Espero que esto sirva de utilidad a quien se encuentre con un problema similar. Suerte.
