We want to run the Policy Server Snmp Agent and we have 3 questions :
1 - The script /etc/init.d/NetegrityAgent has no start/stop values; Plus it can't be registered as service. How can we make this script registered as service in Unix ?
2 - The SNMP service will not start on server boot, as symlink only to runlevel 5 and system by default run on runlevel 3. How can we make it starting at runlevel 3 ?
3 - The SNMP service is executed as root, and it calls another script /opt/CA/siteminder/etc/snmp/conf/RunSubagent.sh which also executes as root java commands. How can we make it running for a specific user ?
