They're there, alright, but they don't all play nicely. Some of them are
downright ugly. And on Solaris 10, the "rc*" stuff is gone (almost), to be
replaced by SMF. I'll assume the OP is using a Solaris version other than

The "/etc/init.d/syslog" start script is a simple example of this on
Solaris 9, although it stores the PID in /var/run/syslog.pid and then uses
a symlink of that in /etc/syslog.pid - the behaviour is the same, though.
When you have a script in /etc/init.d/ with your start and stop cases
defined you should link it into the relevant rc directory (rc2.d in your
case) to start it and also any runlevels where you would like to stop it.
Bear in mind that the commands you are using below are "csh" syntax,
whereas most of the other start scripts you will see will be in bourne
shell ("sh", "ksh" or (rarely, on Solaris) "bash") syntax. You will need
to translate accordingly.
