Parallels Plesk Panel version 9.2 with Postfix MTA.

Error "mali_admin_aliases... not exsists" is shown when run utility utility mchk:

~# $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/admin/sbin/mchk
==> Checking for: mailsrv_conf_init... ok
==> Checking for: mail_mailbox_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mailsrv_entities_dump... ok
==> Checking for: mali_admin_aliases... not exsists <- syntax error in "mail"

That causes the error?


In Parallels Plesk Panel 9 utility mchk is a shell script that contains commands calls to update configuration of mail services.

There is a syntax error in call of utility mail_admin_aliases. It is called as mali_admin_aliases.
Because the utility is not executed aliases are not updated in the database.


Script mchk it is not executed by Parallels Plesk Panel. You may see the error only if execute the script from the command line.
As a workaround you should run utility mail_admin_aliases manually. For Plesk 9, CentOS 5 32bit:

~# /usr/lib/plesk-9.0/mail_admin_aliases

The file may be located in another place on your server. The location is  defined by Plesk variable $PLESK_LIBEXEC_DIR. It may be /usr/lib/plesk-9.0/, /usr/lib64/plesk-9.0/ or /usr/local/libexec/plesk-9.0 according to your operating system and architecture. Look into this article to define the variable:

The problem will be fixed in next update of Parallels Plesk Panel that is going to be released after version 9.2.
