System Administration Guide: Basic Administration

ProcedureHow to Disable a Run Control Script

You can disable a run control script by renaming it with an underscore (_) at the beginning of the file name. Files that begin with an underscore or dot are not executed. If you copy a file by adding a suffix to it, both files will be run.

  1. Become superuser or assume a role that includes the Service Management rights profile.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Rename the script by adding an underscore (_) to the beginning of the new file.

    # cd /etc/rcn.d
    # mv filename _filename
  3. Verify that the script has been renamed.

    # ls _*
