fix

If selecting the inittab option in SNAIC  (or while running the install.sh script) to start uvserv and uagent, the following lines are appended to /etc/inittab:

uags:3:once:/etc/init.d/uagent start >/dev/null 2>&1
uvss:3:once:/etc/init.d/uvserv start >/dev/null 2>&1

If selecting the inittab option to start detectd (the default option), the following line is appended to /etc/inittab:

dtds:3:once:/etc/init.d/detectd start >/dev/null 2>&1

These lines cause the agents to start as persistent processes immediately after either SNAIC or the install.sh script loads and configures the agents on the server, or whenever the system reads and executes the commands in inittab (boot level 3 by default).

Verify that the agent processes are running by telneting or ssh-ing to the host and executing the following command at the prompt:

ps -ef | egrep 'uvserv|uagent|detectd'

The processes will run as root with unique PIDs.
