VL-5.8-Gold run level 2

If in vasm services I check, at, cron and/or sendmail then on booting I get [failure] instead of [ok] for those services. Yet they are up and running when boot is finished. So I disable them in vasm services.

Why those failure messages?

Pita,

Check your /etc/rc.d/init.d directory for executable scripts called sendmail and cron. If they are not there, then copy them from the /etc/rc.d/init.d/sample directory into /etc/rc.d/init.d. Re-run VASM to set those services for run level 2.

HTH,
John

at, cron and sendmail are in /etc/rc.d/init.d as executable scripts. If I set those services with VASM I get the failure message. Not setting them in VASM no [failure] message and no [OK] message. The [failure] message does not prevent those services having been started anyhow.

Unfortunately the boot.log file is truncated and does not show those failure messages. I have reported this in a separate massage and not received any reply sofar.

/etc/rc.d/rc2.d shows @at, @cron and @sendmail which all point to /init.d/.

I just found why I get those failure messages on booting for "at", "cron" and "sendmail" when in VASM those services are set.

At the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.M those 3 services are initialized, therefore a second initialization causes the [failure] message when via VASM rc2/3.d  /init.d is run.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/at status
/usr/sbin/atd running with Process ID 3434

/etc/rc.d/init.d/at start
Starting AT daemon............                                       [FAILED]

/etc/rc.d/init.d/at stop
Stopping AT daemon............                                       [  OK  ]

/etc/rc.d/init.d/at start
Starting AT daemon............                                       [  OK  ]
