Any chance that this system doesn’t have valid DNS lookups?

What I see above is that ipmidetetd failed (which doesn’t block) and then it is stuck starting sendmail.   If memory serves me (I haven’t used sendmail in years) sendmail gets stuck waiting for a response from DNS servers when it’s performing part of its startup.
