Patch level detected:SP Analyst Agent for Unix 5.60
Product Version: Sysload 5.6.0

Description :The setup of the agent for Unix/Linux does not create the Sysload autostart script ( /etc/init.d/sysload on Linux)
Environment:
OS: All Unix
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The setup installation folder (pkgdir) was the same as the temporary folder (tmpdir) which by default is /tmp/sysload.
On the setup-HOSTNAME.log:
Resolution:
In order to avoid this issue from occurring again, you should untar the kit (spa-XXX.tar) to another directory different of /tmp/sysload.

The workaround consists on launching the setup on mode -task updatebootcfg from a different folder ( not /tmp/sysload).

This will create the /etc/init.d/sysload script and the rest of symbolic links on /etc/rcX.d

Example:
####################################################
[root@vmstl32c58cst01 sysload]# ./setup -task updatebootcfg
SP Analyst Agent for Unix 5.60 :update bootcfg ...
SP Analyst Agent for Unix 5.60 :update bootcfg done
