RE: Changing run levels -init.d

That’s great to know and I appreciate your answer.

I DO NOT want the db startup and shutdown to be managed in ckhconfig. 

What I want to know at what runlevels the start and kill scripts are executed
I have read thru the rc script in /etc/rc.d and the RH doc for 7.2.
If I am at runlevel 3 and going to runlevel 5
It looks at the K scripts in runlevel 5 executes them and then looks at the S
Scripts in runlevel 5 and executes them - 

It doesn’t execute anything in runlevel 3.

I believe this is different from Sys V behavior correct me if I am wrong.

I am just trying to verify so I can put my S and K scripts in the correct dirs.

I don't think you have fully grokked the man page for chkconfig, 
specifically the -add option and the two little lines that you add at 
the top of your startup script.

from the man page<snip>

Each  service which should be manageable by chkconfig needs two or more
        commented lines added to its init.d script. The first line  
tells  chk-config  what  runlevels the service should be started in by 
default, as well as the start and stop priority levels. If the service 
should  not, by default, be started in any runlevels, a - should be used in 
place of the runlevels list.  The second line contains  a  description  
for  the service,  and may be extended across multiple lines with 
backslash con-tinuation.

        For example, random.init has these three lines:
        # chkconfig: 2345 20 80
        # description: Saves and restores system entropy pool for \
        #              higher quality random number generation.
        This says that the random script should be started in levels 2,  
3,  4, and 5, that its start priority should be 20, and that its stop 
priority  should be 80.  You should be able to figure out  what  the  
Description says;  the \ causes the line to be continued.  The extra space 
in front of the line is ignored. ######################################
