How to Add Routes Before Init Scripts?


Our system has a large number of init scripts (over 180). When we reboot it, we need it to be reachable over the network before all the init scripts load, so putting the routes in rc.local does not work. What's the best place to put the routes so that they get added as soon as possibe?

/etc/rc3.d

Lowest number runs first e.g

K35smb
K50snmpd

smb would ran before snmpd.

These are only soft link files linked to the scripts in /etc/init.d

You will need to create an init script and soft link it in /etc/rc3.d if your running run level 3, if you are running run level 5 the directory would be /etc/rc5.d

Note the above, you may want to manually reconfigure/rename scripts within the correct run level, note that S means start and K means kill. the number is related to the boot order and should be a double figures value (so 0 should still be 00)

Make a copy of the directory BEFORE you edit things, they are only softlinks so it will not take up any real amount of space but if you break things it's an easy restore.

Putting things in Font size 5 with special fonts WILL NOT MAKE PEOPLE WANT TO RESPOND TO YOU!

Good info, thanks. Interestingly, my system has 169 different scripts that begin with S80 (they start 169 different instances of Apache tomcat). There are 264 init scripts in all. Aside from the tomcat scripts (s80tomcat_001, s80tomcat_002, etc.) the other scripts all start with unique numbers. Any idea why the tomcat script all start with the same number?

r3sistance: I remember back in the late 80's when people use to get in big flame wars about top posting versus bottom posting on FIDONET (popular before many people even knew about USENET). At some point since then, I quit caring overly much about questionable points of netiquette. I posted in a large font point because it was a short question and like the way it looked better. So there. :-)
