Question Arcserve Linux Agent

I've only been playing with linux on and off for a couple of months now.. my company received a couple of red hat 9 servers so I've been learning with them.. so here's my problem:

We're running arcserve backup on a win2k server.. I installed the linux agent on my linux machines, and when I manually run the agent it works fine. (The agent allows the win2k server to backup everything on the linux server)..

The problem is that I have to log on and manually run the agent in order for it to be activated.. It's not listed in the services, and it's not in chkconfig... and to make things even more fun, I'm supposed to run it from uagent, which is a script for asagent (in a totally different dir), which is a script for asagentd..

So my question is.. is there any way to have the machine run a command (such as uagent start) when the box boots up (kinda like an autoexec type deal).. any help would be greatly appreciated.

yes, you can. If you normally startup un init3 the goto your /etc/init.d/rc.3/ directory. In this directory create a file called S99script.

In the file put the commands to start the service etc. make sure you chmod the the file to executable.

if you want to disable it just rename it to K99script.

Wow! Thank you for the response, but it is a bit dated.

That message is over 7 years old. We ditched Arcserve years ago, and now use a combination of Bacula and removable hard drives to do our in-house backups. As a matter of fact, my shop is now almost entirely linux based, (although no more Red Hat 9 boxes!). Looking back at that message, it amazes me how far I've come! Thanks!

This may well be a new record - a thread from 2003 responded to 7 years later and the OP responds 6 minutes later. Nice one!
