vncserver on Suse 12 Enterprise

Starting the vncserver by executing vncserver :1 works as expected but what actually starts? I issued these commands but nothing I see identifies with the vncserver. I believe the server is tigervnc.
service --status-all
systemctl -a
systemctl list-unit-files
chkconfig -A
Also, how can this command: "vncserver :1", be issued at startup or turn the service on at startup?
I have tried this but the command does not execute.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 379 Apr 23 17:33 /etc/init.d/after.local
cat /etc/init.d/after.local

./usr/bin/vncserver :1

Made the following updates to /et/c/init/d/after.local

export HOME
/usr/bin/vncserver -fg :1
