I would like run nohup command on java application. But its not working in solaris 8(Intel). I'm running nohup command as user :

nohup progname &.

Its not working. I'd try also without nohup i.e. progname & -- not working, I'm using sh shell.

All the above command working fine in bash and ksh shell


Anybody can help me.

nohup in Solaris 8 (Intel), only work when you run as root

you can use:
   su root -c "nohup program logfile 2>&1&"

That's a good question ahoffman. I just did some testing on the question.

arvind, nohup only have problem to run when you are a no root user and your current shell is ksh. IT WILL WORK WITH
csh/tcsh/sh, if your can write a little csh or sh script to do your job. (I have tested it on Solaris 7/8 both Intel and Sparc)

eg:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/nohup $1 &

and use your java script to call the shell script.

For none-root user to run nohup (root works fine), when they logout, the nohup process get killed.

But if you change you shell to sh/tcsh/csh, and run nohup, it will work. (my default login shell is ksh, that's why I
