I have just deployed a new CentOS 6.4 image on AWS, and I'm having issues
with init.d scripts not starting up.


I've verified the following;


1)      They work on their own after boot

2)      They're set to run at runlevel 3,4, and 5 via chkconfig

3)      The system boots up in runlevel 3 (no GUI)

4)      There are no lingering PID files around after boot

5)      Permissions are correct on the files in init.d

6)      /etc/init.d is linked to /etc/rc.d/init.d

7)      Some functions start up correctly at start up (such as bind)

8)      All file systems are mounted in runlevel 3

9)      The IP address is static on the server


One specific example is crond;


Chkconfig output:

crond           0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off


permissions in init.d:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   2793 Jul 18  2011 crond


The processes that aren't loading are; 

Clamd, directadmin, exim, freshclam, httpd, mysqld, ossec, proftpd, sshguard


Any ideas what I need to check/change to resolve this problem?


Thanks everyone!
