Razor: Error 202 while performing register, aborting

I’m currently integrating Razor into my e-mail setup on my new server (more on my new e-mail hotness later) and had a strange error when trying to get it setup:


bash-2.05b$ razor-admin -create
bash-2.05b$ razor-admin -register -user postmaster@harvesthisspambot.com
Error 202 while performing register, aborting.

Turns-out you need to run the razor-admin with a -discover first if you come across this error. In general it’s some sort of network error.


bash-2.05b$ razor-admin -discover
bash-2.05b$ razor-admin -create
bash-2.05b$ razor-admin -register -user postmaster@harvesthisspambot.com
Register successful. Identity stored in /var/amavis/.razor/identity-postmaster@harvesthisspambot.com

Seems like there are always several small “gotchas” when setting-up a fresh Unix box from scratch, but once you’re done with it it’s pure gold. I’ll be sporadically publishing a few more of these as I work on my new server in hopes someone in the future will have better luck finding a particular problem on Google than I’ve had.
