Solaris startup script information

  1. Solaris startup script information

    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 ...

    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.
