The Init-Script included in the rpm-File for SLES 11 (maxscale-2.0.2-1.sles.11.x86_64.rpm) does work but outputs errormessages due to functions which are not available in SLES's LSB init-functions:
$> /etc/init.d/maxscale status
./maxscale: line 152: log_daemon_msg: command not found
./maxscale: line 153: status_of_proc: command not found
./maxscale: line 164: log_end_msg: command not found
This also happens on start, stop etc.
As this affects only the console output of the script but not the basic functionality (except displaying the status) I classified this as a minor problem.
I rewrote the init-Script so that it doesn't rely on those functions any more and uses SLES-functions (rc_status to display the result of the previous action) and attached it.
