I'm replacing an active directory windows server with a linux one. I have to introduce the linux server onto the network, but without AD services (like dhcpd, ldap etc).
So I was hoping to create a runlevel that'll allow me to bring the linux server up on the network without these services, then, when I've removed the windows server, I can change runlevels and start ldap etc.
I remember reading that runlevels are deprecated - is this correct? - If so, how can I achieve my goals?
