We are planning on disabling the RHEL Server reboot triggered by control-alt-delete.

for which we are going to follow the Steps mentioned here. However, that link does not say whether we need to reboot the server after making that change for it to take effect.

So someone let us know if we need a reboot or does it take effect without a reboot? Also, share any links that have a better solution or implementation steps.

I've just mentioned rhel as the OS version as we have few servers on rhel 4 few of them on rhel 5
