Hi,

I was asked to disable some startup scripts in Solaris 8 by our

security personnel. Before I proceed, I would like to know what the

scripts for. Where can I find the information of the startup scripts?

Thanks in advance.

      Which and what are the names of those scripts? if they are the

      standard initialization scripts for the OS services to come-online,,

      you must be making mistakes,, else some may be un-necessary for your

      environment like if you dont run NFS disable NFS related startup

      scripts...

      perhaps a listing would be nice to decide here ...

      Regds,

      Start scripts are for starting things. If you disable them these things

      won't get started.

      Hint: More information what you want to disable would be helpful.

      If you don't know, you're in the wrong position. To run anything where

      security has interest you must have a proper education. Ask your manager

      for a couple of training weeks.

      The scripts themselves. The names are usually a BIG hint--S15nfs.server is

      a startup script to (surprise!!!) Start the NFS server processes.

      If the names don't give it away, then read the script.

      Most of the listed scripts here will not cause security problem. But

      you can disable them by changing "S" to something else if they are not

      used.

      You may really need to deal with /etc/inet/inetd.conf. Comment out

      finger, telnet, ftp.
