From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
it is explained how can start,stop services under RHL 7.2 . I have found
inccorect the explanations or maybe not accurate:
See from original place:
" * chkconfig -- a command-line utility that allows you to turn services on
and off for the different runlevels. Changes do not take effect immediately.
Services can not be started, stopped, or restarted using this utility."
Well this is incorrect since I can immediately start stop lets say ntalkd via
chkconfig. So this is not exact information under your docs. Please confirm . As
well this works to start stop any other services with the immediate results.
So I don't understand why do you see is applicable with no immediate effects !?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the above link
Changes do not take effect immediately for non-xinetd services such as autofs
and crond. Changes do take effect for xinetd services such as ntalk. I have
changed it to
chkconfig -- a command-line utility that
allows you to turn services on and off for the different
runlevels. Changes do not take effect immediately for non-xinetd
services. Non-xinetd services can not be started, stopped, or
restarted using this utility.
Does this make sense to you?
Sorry for my long delay.
