I assume the problem is that /usr/local isn't mounted at the time that the rcorder which looks for scripts there is run. Yes?

I believe this problem is fixable by changing rc.d's idea of what needs to be done "early" to include NFS mounts. I've never done this and don't have a recent enough system to look at but, the man page for rc.d on 6.3 mentions the early/late divider so explore that and see if it helps you. If NFS:/usr/local is mounted there should be no reason why you can't run startups scripts from there.

If that doesn't help then searches of the [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list might turn something up; if you can't find anything there then posting to [EMAIL PROTECTED] might get you an answer if nothing more specific comes up here.

You should also mention which version of FreeBSD you are running, since rc.d is has had numerous improvements in recent releases.
