Kind of a newbish question here. We use a program called Airwave to help monitor all of our wireless APs. It is running on a cent os box. We have tivoli for our backup solution. I have the agent installed and it works fine - but I've had to reboot the machine a couple of times and every time I forget the agent does not start on startup; and I'm not exactly sure how to do this. This is how I start the agent manually:
nohup ./dsmc sched &
nohup ./dsmadmc &
How would I go about throwing this into startup? Do I have to do something in /etc/init.d/ ??
nohup stops a service dying when the controlling shell dissapears, i.e. you close a terminal window. from rc.local that is run via the init process, so never terminates until the OS itself is shut down.
rc.local is a redhat invention. as such it covers redhat, fedora and all redhat derivates back to a point of diversion... suse was originally base on redhat way back, so might be in there etc.. not sure.
