PreScript - I can work around this problem, all I really want to know is why
I'm just about to check the FAQ but kind of need to know fairly quickly.
Anyway, I'm writing a menu driven script that does lots of nice things.
One of the things it does is launch web servers for different users. I
prompt for the username and then use rsh to remote shell to the web server
to start the daemon.
The command line looks like this:
rsh web_server "/opt/suitespot/https-xxxxx-blah/start"
The trouble is that if I run the command while on the server web_server I
don't get the prompt back. Before you go at me, I know that I don't need to
rsh to the machine I am already on, but I was just wondering why the process
does not return control to my shell. A truss on the rsh process says that
it is polling.
It's an Ultra10, Solaris 2.6, patched recently, web server is Netscape
