Ummm... no. Not under Solaris. Is this some Linux weirdness? Under Solaris, 
there is no rc6.d, and stop scripts are called Knnfoo. /etc/rc6 invokes the 
scripts in shutdown.d (which is old deprecated SysV stuff) and rc0.d. Stop 
scripts should be in every run level directory lower than the one the start 
script is in (this is slightly over-simplified, but is true for the default 
Solaris run levels). So a standard solaris setup would be:
