startup process question

hello all,
i have a ? about the startup question.
I have a startup script named remedy S996_remedy in rc3.d.Also i have a process for oracle startup at S990oracle_start.when ever i restart the server i see the S996 remedy starts first even before the oracledbstart(s990oracle_start) with the low pid say 400 .upon watching at the console i have been able to see at the end of the boot up process the remedy script echo's a message that i have added and i can see the low pid of this process gets change to higher as 2600 .I would like to know why it's being started early than oracle database as well as why the pid numbers are changeing from high to low.
any idea is greatly appreciated.Thanks

Re: startup process question

Did you check if there is another remedy startup script in rc2.d? or in /etc/inittab?

This should be a symbolic link to the startup script in /sbin/init.d

I would ignore any PID ordering and look directly at the output of /etc/rc.log.
PIDs can also change when doing fork/exec to create demons.

Hi navin,

Its Better ..You need to look the /etc/rc.log and you need have clear idea at will runlevel the remedy was started.

Hope you understand,
