I am not very familiar with AIX.  I can't seem to find the run control files.  I am used to Linux, where they are in /etc/rc.d.

Specifically, I have a sendmail server starting when the system boots, and I would not like it to start when the system reboots.  I am not sure how it is being started though.

Thanks.

AIX version 4.3.3

/etc/rc does not tell me a whole lot.  Am I missing something?

Hi
   In AIX, this kind of entries use to be in
   /etc/inittab

  Edit it and search for the sendmail.

  If it is there, you can comment it by placing  a  ;
  in the first position, or delete the line.

start /usr/lib/sendmail "$src_running" "-bd -q${qpi}"
