I am running into a problem when trying to start a detached screen through a Solaris 11 service.
This service controls nginx. When I reboot the system, the screen doesn't start, but if I issue
svcadm disable nginx then
svcadm enable nginx manually, it does. The rest of the init script functions correctly on a reboot (the nginx daemon starts, etc).
The part of the service that triggers the screen looks like this:
case "$1" in start) echo "Starting Nginx Logger: \c" /usr/bin/screen -S nginxLogger -d -m /opt/php-5.3.10/bin/php $loggingProg LogRetVal=$? [ $LogRetVal -eq 0 ] & echo "ok" || echo "failed" ....
The log (/var/svc/log/network-nginx:default.log) shows that $LogRetVal is returning 0, and $loggingProg is just pointing to a PHP script.
If it matters, when I manually restart the service, I'm logged in as root. I'm unsure how to check if it's a permission issue (I'm new to Solaris, I've recently switched from CentOS/RHEL).
