Load Balancing TCP directive mail {}

June 06, 2020 06:51PM
Hi folks,

I'm trying to do a round-robin load balancing for outgoing connections from my MTA servers. At first I tried it as follows:

[root@proxy-lb02 email]# pwd
/etc/nginx/email
[root@proxy-lb02 email]# cat balanceador.conf
stream {
upstream stream_backend_mail {
least_conn;
server mta-01.srvmail.com.br:26 max_fails=2 fail_timeout=15s;
server mta-02.srvmail.com.br:26 max_fails=2 fail_timeout=15s;
server mta-03.srvmail.com.br:26 max_fails=2 fail_timeout=15s;
server mta-04.srvmail.com.br:26 max_fails=2 fail_timeout=15s;
server mta-05.srvmail.com.br:26 max_fails=2 fail_timeout=15s;
}


server {
listen 0.0.0.0:25;
proxy_pass stream_backend_mail;
}
}

[root@proxy-lb02 nginx]# pwd
/etc/nginx
[root@proxy-lb02 nginx]# cat nginx.conf

user nginx;
worker_processes 1;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
pid /var/run/nginx.pid;


events {
worker_connections 1024;
}


http {
include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
'$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log main;

sendfile on;
#tcp_nopush on;

keepalive_timeout 65;

#gzip on;

include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;




}

mail {

include /etc/nginx/email/*.conf;

}


[root@proxy-lb02 nginx]# systemctl restart nginx

Could someone help me find the solution to this error?

Thanks.
