From what I understand, the file
/etc/init.d/boot.local is a perfectly legit place to sprinkle a few extra commands you would like to be run when SLES 11 starts up. However, when our organization recently upgraded to SP2, this file was completely overwritten on our boxes.
Were my initial assumptions wrong? According to documentation (and the comments in the file itself) this file should be OK. But I'm not about to be burned a second time.... so where should I place these commands instead?
Note that I wish for these commands to be run before rc services are start. Therefore the boot.local file was perfect for our needs.
