    Problem starting GateIn 3.2 as service in Redhat

    Thomas Chacko Newbie

      hi.

         I am trying to make GateIn 3.2 a service. To do so, I just created a file(gateinservice in etc/init.d) with content as follows :

       

      #!/bin/sh

      #

      #

      #

      # chkconfig: 2345 98 02

      # description: This is a daemon for automatically

      # start my service

      #

      # processname: gateinservice

      #

      # pidfile: /var/run/gateinservice/gateinservice.pid

      # Source function library.

      . /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

       

      prefix=/usr

      exec_prefix=/usr

      sbindir=/usr/sbin

      SCRIPT_BASE=/home/ABC/GateIn-3.2.0/bin

      SCRIPT_LOG_LOCATION=/home/ABC/GateIn-3.2.0/log

      START_UP_LOG=${SCRIPT_LOG_LOCATION}/startup

      SHUT_DOWN_LOG=${SCRIPT_LOG_LOCATION}/shutdown

      pidfile=/var/run/gateinservice/gateinservice.pid

      # Sanity checks.

       

      # so we can rearrange this easily

       

      RETVAL=0

       

      start()

      {

      echo "Starting my service "

      echo " log location is:" ${START_UP_LOG}

      ${SCRIPT_BASE}/run.sh>>${START_UP_LOG}

      echo "Done starting my service! "

       

      }

       

      stop()

      {

       

      echo "Stopping my service "

      echo " log location is:" ${SHUT_DOWN_LOG}

      ${SCRIPT_BASE}/shutdown.sh>>${SHUT_DOWN_LOG}

      echo "Done stopping my service! "

       

      }

       

      # See how we were called.

      case "$1" in

      start)

      start

      ;;

      stop)

      stop

      ;;

      status)

      status -p $pidfile $processname

      RETVAL=$?

      ;;

      restart)

      stop

      start

      ;;

      condrestart)

      if [ -f /var/lock/subsys/$servicename ]; then

      stop

      start

      fi

      ;;

      *)

      echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|restart|condrestart}"

      ;;

      esac

      exit $RETVAL

       

         GateIn was started successfully. But on checking the status of gateinservice using the command ' service gateinservice status', I'm getting 'is stopped'. why is it so ?
