Description David Hartmann 2010-06-14 00:35:43 EDT
Description of problem:

The chkconfig utility fails to create kill script sym links and only creates start script symlinks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Reproducible every time by doing the following:

1. Create a dummy init.d script containing the following

# chkconfig: 235 99 11
# Description: dummy

2. Run the following command

# chkconfig dummy on

3. Confirmed that only start script symlinks were created by doing a find from /etc

Checking the /etc/rc3.d directory has only the start script symlink and no kill scripts.

Actual results:

Only start scripts created 

Expected results:

Start and Stop scripts should be created

Additional info:
Comment 1 David Hartmann 2010-06-14 00:51:00 EDT
The command used to create the symlink was incorrect "chkconfig --add <scriptname>" I think should have been used.

The result is still the same with only start scripts created. I am unable to get both start and stop scripts created as in the init.d script
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-06-15 15:33:57 EDT
[root@localhost init.d]# cat /etc/init.d/dummy 
# chkconfig: 235 11 99 
# Description: dummy 
[root@localhost init.d]# chkconfig --add dummy 
[root@localhost init.d]# ls /etc/rc*.d/*dummy 
/etc/rc0.d/K99dummy /etc/rc3.d/S11dummy /etc/rc6.d/K99dummy                    
/etc/rc1.d/K99dummy /etc/rc4.d/K99dummy              
/etc/rc2.d/S11dummy /etc/rc5.d/S11dummy              
[root@localhost init.d]# rpm -q chkconfig

This works for me.
