Original question:

Dear SMs,

How can I delay the boot of a Solaris 2.5x box between startup

We've got a script that starts up Sybase and our databases
(S98sybstart) followed by another script (S99sybread) that reads of
the databases.

S98sybstart takes a while to finish and thus S99sybread falls over.

Maybe a script that does a delay that runs in the foreground? It
looks like all the scripts that gets kicked of run in the background.

S99delay ?



There are basically three ways of doing this:

* Insert a sleep between (end of first, seperate S* script, or
beginning of second script) the two scripts
* Append the second script to the first
* Wrap the second script in a while test-condition to start it.

Thanks to *
