RE: /etc/rc*.d/K05st.exmple not executed when the system is shut down

Thank you very much for your nice response.

Is this really a standard practice to create a startup for a daemon so that the daemon can be shut down when the system is shut down? Can you please point me to any manual or doc that describes this step? 

I was thinking that by adding  K05st.example to  /etc/rc6.d e.g. would automatically take care of the daemon shutdown.   

Please be aware that killall gets excuted after K* in /etc/rc6.d:

[root lcls-srv20 init.d]# ls -all /etc/rc6.d/S00killall
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 17 Mar  3 13:04 /etc/rc6.d/S00killall -> ../init.d/killall

If killall is all needed, what is /etc/rc*.d/K* for?

Thanks again.

Your start function needs to create a lockfile called /var/lock/subsys/<name of
service> and then your stop function needs to remove it.  The
/etc/init.d/killall script will explain more.
