The pqactHUP action for the script ldmadmin sends a HUP signal to the LDM routine pqact. This tells pqact to reread its configuration file, pqact.conf. This allows you to make changes to pqact.conf and then make them active without stopping and restarting the LDM. >What syntax do I use. ldmadmin pqactHUP Again, this is done after verifying that there are no errors reported from an: ldmadmin pqactcheck >Also, I am >getting the error hupsyslog: couldn't open /var/run/syslogd.pid. I >should point out that there isn't a var partition on the disk. Should >I be concerned about this? This does not sound correct. You should have a / partition at least. /var gets created in / if there is no /var partition. I would be concerned about this. I am assuming that you are doing this on a RedHat 7.1 Linux system. If not please correct me. On our RedHat 7.1 Linux system, the contents of /var look like: (imogene:ldm) ls /var arpwatch ftp lib log named preserve state yp cache gdm local mail nis run tmp db kerberos lock mars_nwe opt spool www And, /var/run looks like: (imogene:ldm) 3 % ls /var/run atd.pid identd.pid netreport random-seed syslogd.pid crond.pid klogd.pid news runlevel.dir utmp gdm.pid lpd.printer phhttpd sendmail.pid xinetd.pid gpm.pid mysqld pvm3 sudo Please let me know if the machine you are configuring is not a Linux box. I will be in the office for another 30 minutes, and I will be reading email all weekend from home since I will be doing development tonight/tomorrow and Sunday. Tom
