There was more of discussions than any actual work.  There seems to be
agreement that Phil's ugly hack based on an obscure documented
behavior would do the job, but nobody sprang to coding.  I personally
don't care about the NFS setup, so I'll let the NFS supporters
implement the solution.

> The problem is that CSWnrpe doesn't create a service manifest upon installation unless the directory /etc/opt/csw/init.d exists prior to installation. We're using version nrpe 2.12,REV=2009.06.25, and cswclassutils 1.38,REV=2010.06.15

I used to think that CSWcommon contained it, but apparently, I'm wrong:


I also thought that GAR removed this directory by default.  However,
it's not on the list of common directories:


I thought that the way it works is that either every package provides
its own /etc/opt/csw/init.d, or that CSWcommon provides it.  Right
now, it looks like none of that is true, so I don't know how this
could ever work.

Can the elders shed any light on the issue?
