Hello,
How do I re-read the inittab without rebooting the server?

init q does not seem to work in SLES.

Which version of SLES are you using? What's the output from "cat
/etc/*release"?
What does "init" (with no parameters) report?
Which version of the sysvinit package do you have installed? "rpm -q
sysvinit"

HTH.

Hi,

The version is SLES 11 SP2.
Init without arguments says: "Usage: init 0123456SsQqAaBbCcUu
Sysvinit version is sysvinit-2.86-215.1

Thanks
