how to add this to startup?


Hi,

i am trying the single sign on for couple of weeks.

the problem is that every time the system boots up the redhat9.0 system becomes a little late then the windows 2000 domain controller.

so i have to manually run this command to get it in sunc with the domain controller.

as i am using samba 3.0.4 this is the command i use


net time set -S 10.10.1.125

this is the IP of the computer which is the domain controller.

so all i wan is that this command should run at the end of every boot up process.

can any one tell me how to make it a startup shell script and where to put the file?

you can put it in /etc/rc.local

OR

create a /etc/cron.daily/0ntpdate

/usr/sbin/ntpdate -u clock.redhat.com ... although this clock may not match your Win2K clocks.

Yes, rc.local is a file

edit /etc/rc.local and add your command

net time ...

#cd /etc/rcn.d //where n is the init level of your choice

#cp <your script> S99scriptname
#chmod 755 S99scriptname

Snnscriptname or Knnscriptname

S - startup script
K - stop / kill script
nn - to prioritize your script - (make it run after or before other scripts)
scriptname - name of the script you want to run
