    plesase answer for me

    • Hi,

      Useful update from a customer on above post on How to start Applications Manager when Linux boots (like starting Applications Manager as service in Windows) ?

      1.)If you run the script from rc.local it puts the nohup.out file there (file is created where the script is run), so instead I created a file in …/ManageEngine/AppManager10/ called


      cd /home/criticalstart/ManageEngine/AppManager10/

      su -c “nohup sh &” root

      2.)I then called this file in rc.local

      Su –c “sh /home/criticalstart/ManageEngine/AppManager10/” root

      This works fine, and puts the nohup.out file where it belongs.

      3.)Also make sure you place the below lines in script before the line “if [ $# -eq 1 ]” to ensure safe start-up.

      ./ -force
      sleep 30
      echo “Shutdown Successfully done”
      mv logs old_logs_`date +%y%m%d_%T`

      Thanks & Regards,
