Fixing Likewise startup scripts on Debian Squeeze

Just a quick one, this…

If you install Likewise Open on Debian Squeeze, you may notice that it doesn’t start on boot-up. The reason is because the new dependency-based boot sequence doesn’t like the init scripts Likewise provides.

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to fix. First, make sure you have chkconfig installed (apt-get install chkconfig if not), change into your /etc/init.d directory and do this:-

for INIT in lsassd lwiod eventlogd dcerpcd netlogond lwregd srvsvcd; do \
   echo "Fixing '${INIT}'..."; \
   sed -i -e 's/^#LWI_STARTUP_TYPE_SUSE#/#/g' \
      -e 's/Default-Start: 3 5/Default-Start: 2 3 4 5/g' \
      -e 's/Default-Stop: 0 1 2 6/Default-Stop: 0 1 6/g' ${INIT}; \
for INIT in lsassd lwiod netlogond eventlogd dcerpcd; do \
   echo "Disabling ${INIT}..."; \
   chkconfig -d ${INIT}; \
for INIT in dcerpcd eventlogd netlogond lwiod lsassd; do \
   echo "Re-enabling ${INIT}..."; \
   chkconfig -a ${INIT}; \

This uncomments the SUSE parts of the init scripts, which chkconfig wants. It then calls chkconfig to first delete each entry, and then re-add it to make sure everything’s okay. Reboot, and you should have working domain authentication without having to manually start it up.
