How do you customize scripts' sequence number for different runlevels?


1) I have a start/stop script in /etc/init.d/myscript and I would like the script to start at sequence number 60 at runlevel 2 and 99 for the rest of the runlevels. That is,

/etc/rc1.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc2.d/S60myscript
/etc/rc3.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc4.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc5.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc6.d/S99myscript

Can this be accomplished through update-rc.d command?

2) I have a start/stop script in /etc/init.d/myscript and the script starts at sequence number 99 on all runlevels. How do I edit with 'update-rc.d' to change the sequence number at runlevel 2 from 99 to 50?

3) How do I remove a script from running at runlevel 2 without affecting the start/stop sequence of the script for the rest of the runlevels?


Thanks !

1) Can the script start at sequence number 50 at runlevel 2 (only) and 99 for the rest of the runlevels. That is,

/etc/rc1.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc2.d/S50myscript
/etc/rc3.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc4.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc5.d/S99myscript
/etc/rc6.d/S99myscript

2) Can the sequence number of existing links in /etc/rcx.d be changed with 'update-rc.d'? Eg. to change sequence number of /etc/rc2.d/S99myscript to /etc/rc2.d/S80myscript.

3) Error : System startup links for /etc/init.d/myscript already exist.


Thanks !
