Question Modprobe problem

I'm trying to get a watchdog module working on a server. (Watchdog timers are little hardware devices that reboot the system if it becomes unresponsive.) The module takes some options like the timeout til reboot, what power action to take, etc. I've set these options up in /etc/modprobe.d/options

When I run modprobe ipmi_watchdog by hand, it works as expected. When I let it run from the watchdog init.d script, it does not (system does not reboot after timeout).

Is there any way to look at the options specified on an already-loaded kernel module?

Try 'modinfo ipmi_watchdog'

That shows me what options *can be set*, but not what options, *have been* set.

... which makes me doubt the init script is working properly (?).

Maybe (just googling and guessing, though ...): wdt

They may be available(or perhaps even settable) via the /sys/module interface.
