Debian and LSBInitScripts
Since Debian 6.0 the command insserv is introduced and used by update-rc.d (so you don't have to use it instead). But a LSB (abbr. Linux Standard Base) header is now "needed" in the init script. You can use system facility names to decide when your script should start and stop, or even define your own. But often it's good enough to just make sure it starts after everything else. For that you can use the
$allargument that's supported by insserv. In my script I don't require anything to stop it, so I leave it empty which is also supported.
#!/bin/sh ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: scriptname # Required-Start: $all # Required-Stop: # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5 # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # Short-Description: Start daemon at boot time # Description: Mounts Intrashare at DJ-SERVER-W1. ### END INIT INFO mount -t cifs -o username=x,password=x,uid=1001,gid=1001 //0.0.0.0/Share /Intrashare
Install with (optional) insserv scriptname (Use -n param to preview changes).
