Re: LDM Startup error, any suggestions? - SOLVED

Here's a script that will restart ldm and syslogd on a Soalaris machine.
If syslogd dies, no error messages will get written to ldmd.log, so you
need to restart ldm when restarting syslogd.

#!/bin/sh
y=`ps -ef| grep /usr/sbin/syslogd | grep -v grep | wc -l`
if [ $y = 0 ]
  then
  echo "/usr/sbin/syslogd not running, restarting syslogd and ldm..." 
  /usr/sbin/syslogd
  /bin/su - ldm -c "/usr/local/ldm/bin/ldmadmin stop"
  /bin/su - ldm -c "/usr/local/ldm/bin/ldmadmin newlog"
  sleep 30
  /bin/su - ldm -c "/usr/local/ldm/bin/ldmadmin start"
fi
