SLES 10 SP2 under z/VM 540 and trying to start IBM EKM software

I am able to start Encryption Key Manager manually, but have not been able to start EKM automatically. How would I get EKM to start following a BOOT? Below is my script ekmlaunch.

ekmserv@LINUXEKM:~/keymanager> pwd

ekmserv@LINUXEKM:~/keymanager> cat ekmlaunch

Depends on what flavour/ distribution of Linux you're using, but you want to be looking at init-scripts. Take a look at
Which is the BSD way of doing it.

I tried etc/rc.local and tried etc/init.d/rc.local, and neither executed. I then tried etc/after.locan. It does execute, but does not work in this folder.

Here is my new script after.local:
LINUXEKM:/etc/init.d # cat after.local
# Start Enterprise Key Manager (EKM)
export CLASSPATH=IBMKeyManagementServer.jar
/opt/ibm/java2-s390x-50/ibm-java2-s390x-50/bin/java -cp IBMKeyManagementServer.jar \

Here is the VM CONSOLE LOG:

Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 (s390x) - Kernel 2.6.16.

If I run this script from /home/ekmserv/keymanager, it works fine and starts up EKM.

What am I missing in my after.local script?
