Is it possible to keep child process running with parent process died in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Using upstart init script to start a daemon, which also start several child processes (shell scripts).
  • Need that these child processes to not stop when the main process (daemon ) is stopped.
  • Is there a possibility to change the default upstart SIGTERM kill signal, so that child processes to not die ?
