SMT can be activated and configured using a graphical interface. A special YaST module has been created for this purpose. The YaST SMT Configuration module can be used to configure mirroring credentials, SMT database passwords and e-mail addresses to send SMT reports to, or to set the SMT job schedule, and activate or deactivate the SMT service.
To configure SMT using the YaST SMT Configuration module, follow these steps:
To start YaST SMT module with text (ncurses) interface, run the yast smt command as root.
To start the YaST SMT module with graphical interface, run yast2 smt as root or open YaST Control Center and select in the section.
To activate SMT, check the Section 2.1, Activating and Deactivating SMT with YaSToption in the tab. If you want to disable SMT, uncheck this option. For more information about activating SMT using YaST, see
If satisfied with the configuration, click. YaST adjusts the SMT configuration and starts or restarts necessary services.
If you want to abort the configuration and cancel any changes, click.
NOTE: When the YaST SMT module applies configuration changes, it checks for the existence of the common server certificate. If the certificate does not exist, you will be asked whether the certificate should be created and the YaST CA Management module will be started, if you approve.
