This is not good:

     pgrep cA3Server > /var/run/

This means that the shell will start the cA3Server in a new sub-process and the control jumps immediately to the pgrep command. In other words the pgrep command may finnish before the cA3Server was started. This should explain why you got an empty value in the pid file. Use the exec statement to start the server and *do not* put the server in the background, monit does this automatically when it calls the script. See also the startup script example in the FAQ.

I've modified my script to use exec. Please see my reply to Martin.

Thanks for your help,
