LXer: Having Fun At Other Solaris Sys Admins' Expense

Published at LXer:

Mean spirited? No. Funny and, perhaps, cruel. Of course. Today I'm speeding around, working my arse off so that I can work all weekend (When does it end? ...oh yeah; with the worms ;) and I wrote this little shell script (in Solaris' /bin/sh) to lighten the mood a little. It's another in a string of a thousand fake error messages, but it worked pretty well for my purposes. I made sure to install it up front in the /etc/rc2.d directory (from JumpStart) so that any admin watching a new installation come up for the first time (to verify its integrity) would be guaranteed to see it. Man, it was fun until I had to fix the problem and pretend I had no idea what happened ;)
