Great, thanks.

I kept digging and I tried the following erlang lines :

setLocalRamCopies() ->
  mnesia:change_table_copy_type(acl, node(), ram_copies),
  mnesia:change_table_copy_type(config, node(), ram_copies),
  mnesia:change_table_copy_type(local_config, node(), ram_copies),
  mnesia:change_table_copy_type(passwd, node(), ram_copies).

erlc mychangetabletype.erl

It works as expected on ejabberdctl debug, but it does not work when called
with :
/etc/init.d/ejabberd stop
erl  -pa '/tmp' -home /var/lib/ejabberd -name ejabberd at node01 -setcookie
mycookie  -mnesia dir "'/var/lib/ejabberd'" -run mychangetabletype

I tried also without mnesia:start() in the script and adding -s mnesia to
the command line.

Looks like mnesia is not initialized yet or smth like that.

I'm wondering why it does not work.
