[archive] auto starting acuconnect in linux

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 11 July 2005]

I am having trouble getting acuconnect to start at boot up in Mandrake 9.1.

I am putting the following command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

acurcl -start -e /home/acurcl.err

This command works from the command line fine but not from rc.local.

I do not see any information in the documentation or in the support section of acucorp re issues on auto starting acuconnect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello

Try to include the path to acurcl fx.
"/usr/local/bin/acurcl -start -e /usr/local/bin/acurcl.log"

RE: [archive] auto starting acuconnect in linux

Thank you for your reply. The actual command that I used was:

/usr/bin/acurcl -start -e /home/acurcl.err


I missed putting the path in the first post.

The weird thing is that there seems to be no indication that anything happened. Perhaps I should add " > /home/acurcl.txt" to the end of the command to capture any o/s messages?

RE: [archive] auto starting acuconnect in linux

Hello again

On Red Hat I have created a script /etc/init.d/acurcl (a copy of the samba start/stop script), that does the job. I have attached the script.
Then I have created a link to the script in rc.3 + rc.5

vi /etc/init.d/acurcl
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/acurcl
cd /etc/rc3.d
ln -s -f ../init.d/acurcl S91acurcl
cd /etc/rc5.d
ln -s -f ../init.d/acurcl S91acurcl

When this is done it is possible to activate and deactivate thru the /usr/sbin/ntsysv command.

I hope this helps.

Regards Kim
