Hello Senthil,

You can get the runlevel by "who -r" command as shown:

root> who -r
. run-level 3 May 22 17:22 3 0 2

Here the server is in runlevel 3

-r Indicates the current run-level of the init process. The last three fields contain the current state of init, the number of times that state has been previously entered, and the previous state. These fields are updated each time init changes to a different run state.

Hi:

Does anyone READ what has already been posted? Endlessly repeating the same answer adds NOTHING!

I agree with James..

Repeating the same answer by different user (for sake of adding points to own account)will add NO VALUES to this forum rather makes it quite boring to read...

Thanks!!

>I want to know current runlevel of HP-UX.

Why do you need it? Is is for some rc(1m) script?

>JRF: Does anyone READ what has already been posted?

It's not enough to read the man page and the current thread. You need to read other threads and you'll find out that "who -r" doesn't work at all.
The result of who(1) is nearly the same as "echo 3".

There was mention of getrunlvl but that may not work either:

Re: how to view the current runlevel in hp-ux

Hi Senthil,

who -r gives current run level
/etc/inittab

Hp-UX has the following Run levels:
s single user
2 multi-user; no NFS server capabilities
3 multi-user with NFS server
4 same as 3, but with HP VUE

To change runlevels:
/sbin/shutdown -y 0 # to go to single user state
/sbin/init # bring the system up in the new runlevel
