This document describes how to configure a Linux box which is using the System V init scripts (e.g.  RHEL 6.5) to automatically startup and shutdown the PIM daemons upon startup or shutdown of the box.


1. Copy the sample init script to the init scripts directory:

# cp /opt/CA/AccessControl/samples/system.init/LINUX/S95seos /etc/rc.d/init.d/seos


2. Make the file executable 

# chmod +x /etc/rc.d/init.d/seos


3. Run these commands to enable execution of the script in Runlevel 3 and 5 and confirm the setting

# chkconfig --add seos

# chkconfig --level 3 seos on

# chkconfig --level 5 seos on

# chkconfig --list | grep seos

As a sidenote, you can find out which run-level you're currently using:

# runlevel

N 5


4. It is necessary to amend the seos init script to place a relevant lock file upon startup (else the init system does not execute the stop sequence)
        if [ -x ${SEOSBIN}/seload ] ; then
                PrintMessageByNumber 565 $MESSAGE_CASE newLine noArgs
                "  loading CA ControlMinder ..."
                sleep 5
                ${SEOSBIN}/seload > /dev/null &
                touch /var/lock/subsys/seos

After doing so the K50seos scripts are triggered correctly upon system shutdown.
