This section assumes you have a basic understanding of operating system initialization and runlevels. For information on these topics, see your operating system documentation.
Ensure that your system has a default runlevel of 3 or 5.
To check the default runlevel of your system, inspect the file /etc/inittab , and look for a line near the top similar to this:
This example shows a default runlevel of 5.
Create the following softlinks to the file /etc/init.d/ma-initd :
/etc/rc0.d/K20ma-initd /etc/rc1.d/K20ma-initd /etc/rc2.d/K20ma-initd /etc/rc3.d/S99ma-initd /etc/rc5.d/S99ma-initd /etc/rcS.d/K20ma-initd
Reboot the machine.
To deactivate automatic start and stop of the agent, remove the links or change the letters K and S in the link names to lowercase.
