RE: [Linux-cluster] Init scripts and cluster suite



Hi,
I am on the same boat with my post [Linux-cluster] Init script files for
services..

I can't see this is true 'cause I tired following

[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/httpd stop
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
[root rhel4 ~]# echo $?
0
[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/httpd stop
Stopping httpd:                                            [FAILED]
[root rhel4 ~]# echo $?
1

[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/squid stop
Stopping squid: ................                           [  OK  ]
[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/squid stop
Stopping squid:                                            [FAILED]
[root rhel4 ~]# echo $?
1

[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/postfix stop
Shutting down postfix:                                     [  OK  ]
[root rhel4 ~]# /etc/init.d/postfix stop
Shutting down postfix:                                     [FAILED]
[root rhel4 ~]# echo $?
1
[root dsi-node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/postfix status
master is stopped
[root dsi-node1 ~]# echo $?
3

This is not always worked for me..
