The problem is actually worse, in that this not only happens when your Linux server crashes, but also when it is restarted properly.


The sas.server stop script is not executed at server shutdown time because the sas.servers start script does not create the file /var/lock/subsys/sas.servers. The init subsystem only executes stop scripts for services that have their file in that directory. And since sas.servers does not place this file there, the stop script is not executed.


I have reported this problem, SAS says you should shutdown your SAS environment yourself before rebooting the server. In my opinion, this is just what stop scripts are for.


I have created my own init.d script that does create this lock file. It helps.
