Oracle Exalytics Software - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While patching to Patchset 4 (PS4) the start and kill scripts in /etc/rc.d/* get the wrong numbers.

The numbers are:


Per Header:

# chkconfig: - 13 87
# description: OpenIPMI Driver init script

so S13 and K87.

The detailed description is that chkconfig does not add the ipmi script correctly:

[root@xxxxx]# find . -name *ipmi

[root@xxx]# chkconfig --del ipmi

[root@xxx]# find . -name *ipmi

[root@xxx]# chkconfig --add ipmi

[root@xxx]# find . -name *ipmi


Steps to reproduce

  1. chkconfig --del ipmi
  2. chkconfig --add ipmi
