custom init.d script will start but won't stop

Hey all, I've written a custom init.d script that will basically run a script /root/home/scripts/startup on startup and then when the server is shutting down run /root/home/scripts/shutdown.

I've run chkconfig --add testscript and it does have correct sym links for S and K in rc3.d,rc5.d, rc0.d, rc6.0.

Can anybody suggest anything? Sorry I've also posted this in the Red Hat forum. I'm running Red Hat Enterprise 4.0.



# chkconfig: 35 75 10
# description: my test server function

#Source function library.
. /etc/init.d/functions

start() {
initlog -c "echo -n TESTSCRIPT starting: "
### touch the lock file ###
touch /var/lock/subsys/startscript
touch /var/lock/subsys/stopscript
success $"My test script starting"

stop() {
initlog -c "echo -n RUNNING STOPSCRIPT: "
### Remove the lock file ###
rm -f /var/lock/subsys/startscript
rm -f /var/lock/subsys/stopscript
success $"My test script stopping"

case "$1" in
status servicename
echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|reload|status}"
exit 1

exit 0

Naught. Naughty. You're only supposed to post in one forum. If you think you chose the wrong one you should ask the moderator to move it.
