Startup Scripts

Startup scripts are available for all platforms. They are installed to the following directories depending on the platform:
/etc/init.d IRIX, Redhat Linux, and Solaris
/sbin/init.d HP-UX and Tru64 UNIX
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d AIX

Startup scripts are installed to /etc/rc.d/rc2.d on AIX rather than /etc/rc.d/init.d because /etc/rc.d/init.d is only available on AIX 5.2 and above.

Depending on the platform, either symbolic links or hard links are created in the rc#.d directories for the required run levels. Startup scripts are not marked as configuration files. Therefore, if they are modified, reinstalling the package or installing a newer revision of the package will overwrite the script.

The name of the init script matches the package name without a subpackage extension. Because packages installing init scripts are usually fully versioned, init scripts to start each version of the installed package will exist if multiple versions of the package exist. Removing the "conf" subpackage will remove the init script and all associated files in "/etc/opt/TWWfsw/package" and "/var/opt/TWWfsw/package".
