I do not think the first option will work at all. Stopping xinetd should be more than enough to ensure a stable repository. I do not think there is any need to stop cvslockd. In fact, it is fairly overkill: it could be that other services are hosted by xinetd (although in current Linux installations there are less and less inetd-based services). A more elegant option would be to edit /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver, change the line "disabled = no" to "disabled = yes", send a SIGHUP to xinetd, backup, undo modification and SIGHUP xinetd. Or, in RHES: # chkconfig cvspserver off (Backup) # chkconfig cvspserver on which will, in theory, do the same in less lines ;) -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of David Garcia Sent: Friday, July 13, 2007 8:14 PM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: [cvsnt] How to net stop/start CVSNT on Redhat Linux ES4?
