chkconfig --add adds links for the default state.

The default state for ypserv is disabled; use:

 chkconfig --level <whatever> ypserv on

to enable it.
Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2004-08-23 01:18:07 EDT
Using the --level option makes the entry!

But: The header of /etc/init.d/ypserv looked like:

# chkconfig: 2345 26 74

Does this mean the 2,3,4,5 are the default init states? How can I find
out the default state of such a service?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-23 15:06:49 EDT
Hm, ypserv here has # chkconfig: - 26 74; this means default to off.
