Description: How to get the NetVault service to kick off automatically after init in Debain
Symptoms: The NetVault service doesn't start automatically.
Here is how you get NetVault to run under Debain. This is a workaround that creates an equivalent to the Red Hat file "rc.local" in the Debain init.
1. Create a file called local in /etc/init.d
2. Make the file look like this
3. Make the file executable
chmod +x /etc/init.d/local
4. Make the Debian init aware of the "local" file
update-rc.d local defaults 80
What this does is create a file you can throw scripts you want to kick off on init. In our case a script that kicks off the NetVault service.
