rc.config.d files - Are all parameters loaded upon boot prior to execution of rc*.d/S* scripts

I recall a statement from an HP instructor that all variables in /etc/rc.config.d were loaded upon boot prior to running the rc.#d startup scripts. This would indicate that there could be major problems if multiple variable files, had the same variables.


Would someone please confirm this statement. I have seen previous variable files saved with extensions, as in netconf.old, netconf.new, etc.

Re: rc.config.d files - Are all parameters loaded upon boot prior to execution of rc*.d/S* scripts

once the OS has been loaded and binary startup files have been executed, a number of system configuration files and start links are needed for the system boot completition.
the script /sbin/rc is one of these and it reads the file /etc/rc.config in which all the configuration files /etc/rc.config.d/* are read and the variable set.

Thanks
