Re: services to be configured to come up as normal startup process

Assuming you used the HP CIFS bundle, there are variables, RUN_SAMBA and RUN_WINBIND, in /etc/rc.config.d/samba that control whether or not it starts.

Re: services to be configured to come up as normal startup process

Hi,

I want to know how we can configure any services to come up as normal startup process when system boots. I know in aix we can do that by adding the service entry in /etc/inittab file. How we can do that in HPUX.
Please suggest. I am not looking for any specific service, I am asking in general.
Thanks

Two places.

/etc/inetd.conf for those services controlled by inetd

/etc/rc.config.d/* for all the rest.

Re: services to be configured to come up as normal startup process

Thanks for the response. Can you tell in more details. Here is my requirement.

1. /home/ctmagent/ctm/scripts/rc.agent_user

I want to run this script at startup so that it will start control-m agent.

and
2. /opt/samba/bin/startsmb
This will start samba at startup.

Please let me know, how can achieve these 2 scripts to run at system startup so that the above services should be running even after reboot.

Thanks

Do these products have scripts and documentation that tells you how to either configure them with inittab(4) or rc(1m)?

ok I will check for control-m but what about samba. How can I make samba to start automatically with system startup after reboot.

The same way. If samba is supported on HP-UX, there should already be a /etc/rc.config.d/ file for it. Just edit the config file to enable it.

Yeah samba file was there in /etc/rc.config.d
I edited file and changed parameter as below:
RUN_SAMBA=1

Did I made correct entry?pls let me know, I am new to hpux.
Thanks

I would hope the file had enough comments to tell you what to add.

Is samba working now? Otherwise, have you found a file in /sbin/init.d/ to start samba?

yeah samba is running, my requirement was only to make it come up automatically after system reboot. I change the value to 1 hope that will work.

Thanks
