When i think about it , maybe the best thing is to rename to file to something like /etc/rc2.d/s85power ( instead capital S ) and it will not run.
The only problem is now that i didn't find how to rename a file in cfengine... Can someone help me with that ?

Since disable actions move the file to *.cfsaved it does not work well for init/rc scripts (where the renamed file is still processed). Instead I have been removing the execute permssions like so:

  /etc/rc2.d/S85power mode=a-x action=""

To restore just add the execute permissions back. Also, I usually modify the base script in /etc/init.d that the other scripts in rc*.d should link to.. I also define a class when I change the permission bits and if that class is defined I run a shellcommand like:

  "/bin/sh /etc/init.d/power stop"

That way the service is shut down immediately too.

I'm trying to disable the following on Solaris with cfengine 
version 2.0.5 :



But it doesn't do anything to the following files.

I have also a question :

Is there sort of enable ? for example i have a server which is not 
interactive and i want to disable S99dtlogin. After a while , this 
server goes to someone desk and i would like to enable this 
again. How 
do i implement this ?
