I'm having a problem with a server running RHEL3: when it boots up it won't start any of the services anymore (which means it did in the past...). I don't know what changed.
To look into the problem I changed the default runlevel in /etc/inittab to "2".
Those start-scripts reside in /etc/rc2.d:
S01sysstat S12syslog S58ntpd S90crond
S10network S20random S85mysqld S97rhnsd
S11kernelsec S55sshd S86osad S99local
Sadly after S10network no other script seems to be executed, so the eth0 is configured. init is running:
ps -ef |grep init
root 1 0 0 11:12 ? 00:00:04 init
root 835 729 0 12:56 ttyS0 00:00:00 grep init
No error messages during boot process. I can execute those scripts by
with no problems. So why aren't they executed on start up?
I found some manuals on the boot process of RHEL3 but they won't give me a hint where to look at. So, where would be a good place to have a closer to look at?
