RHE has its ways, fbsd has others. it's not that hard to carry over really...you can make an simple cheatsheet for your engineeres. IMHO, it's quite simple in Freebsd: - if service is part of the base os, script is located in /etc/rc.d - if service is something you have installed, it's located in /usr/local/etc/rc.d Likewise, configuration for base services go in /etc, configuration for ports goes in /usr/local/etc/ ( If you can't tell what is part of the base OS or what is added...you may have other issues at hand :) ) Since you don't have the SysV style scripts in BSD, what gets run (base-system or added-from-ports) is defined in /etc/rc.conf (default options for base services are in /etc/defaults/rc.conf . options for services from ports are usually in the port documentation or the startup script) Regardless of this, scripts in either /etc/rc.d or /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ take the same params as RHE : start, stop, restart, status (+ custom ones in some services/ports). so 'service network restart' = /etc/rc.d/netif restart etc ( I realise you probably know all this, but i have been asked this quite a few times...so I might as well put it down for the archives :) Hope it helped someone :) Best, Beto _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
