The best way is to record fmsadmin's primary pid to a file, either by having it write one, or recording it in the rc script using the $! variable (you'll need to write a custom start_cmd action to do this). Then if you set fmsadmin_pidfile=/path/to/pidfile in rc.conf, rc.d/fmsadmin will send its kill signal to the pid listed in that file, and will wait for just that pid to exit. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
