BEWARE - NOT ALL VERSIONS OF AIX CHECK FOR /etc/rc.shutdown.
It appears that AIX 414 and 421 have a test for /etc/rc.shutdown in
/usr/sbin/shutdown, but by default AIX 415 does not.
You need to check /usr/sbin/shutdown (it is a kornshell script) and if
necessary add something like:
if [ -x /etc/rc.shutdown ]
if [ $? -ne 0 ]
dspmsg -s 1 shutdown.cat 60 \
"/etc/rc.shutdown failed. Shutdown aborting.\n"
somewhere around line 870 - where it does the test for /etc/netware.clean
NOTE: I did not write this - it was done by the previous sysadmin here. It
does work though and I have made similar changes on other systems in the
AIX and RS/6000 SP Specialist
