At the beggining of my file I redirect stderr to stdout, and stdout to logfile, quick and lazy way to log everything printed.
During my script, some commands have large/unused output and I want to redirect them to my logfile without their output showing on stdout.
I tried to use
/etc/init.d/myservice stop &>> file.log
That syntax wasn't introduced until bash 4. You can do the same thing though with
/etc/init.d/myservice stop >> file.log 2>&1
as noted here
