Stop applications on "the server" and disable their auto start as patch install will require several reboots.

Re: stop applications for patch install

Hi Ravinder,

To stop a particular application (Service) use
/sbin/init.d/ stop
and to disable auto start of that application edit the respective file in
/etc/rc.config.d directory.

Re: stop applications for patch install

Hi Ravinder,

All the applications need not be in /sbin/init.d

Most cases people use custom scripts to start applications by different methods. For example if you have MC/SG the startup script may be part of package script.
Always better to study "how" a applications is started and how it can be controlled.
