Using chkconfig

On this page

chkconfig ` is a simple command-line tool for maintaining the `/etc/rc[0-6].d directory hierarchy. This tool relieves system administrators from the task of directly manipulating numerous symbolic links in those directories. The Linux chkconfig command can be used to manipulate CloudBees CD/RO services running on UNIX platforms.

chkconfig —updates and queries runlevel information for system services

chkconfig --list [name]
chkconfig --add name
chkconfig --del name
chkconfig [--level levels] name 
chkconfig [--level levels] name


(list current settings for the local CloudBees CD/RO repository service)
/sbin/chkconfig commanderRepository --listcommanderRepository 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:off 5:on 6:off
(disable autostart on reboot)/sbin/chkconfig commanderRepository off/sbin/chkconfig commanderRepository --listcommanderRepository 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
For every service, each runlevel has either a “start” script or a “stop” script. When switching runlevels, init will not restart an already-started service and will not re-stop a non-running service.
