    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your help. The problem is now resolved.

    Problem:
    "sshd: ^[[60G" appears in /var/log/messages when starting sshd.

    Cause:
    The [ OK ] or [ FAILED ] status which appear when a service starts on
    RHEL
    were incorrectly logging a terminal control character.

    Solution 1:
    * Upgrade initscripts

    Solution 2 (or rather, a workaround):
    * Change "BOOTUP=color" to "BOOTUP=serial" in /etc/sysconfig/init

    Regards,
    Rafiq
