comment Using rsync's archive flag without copying symbolic links
@palswim: See the --no-OPTION option in the man page. -l/--links is implied by the -a option, and hence can be turned off by the corresponding --no-OPTION option.

comment Shell script: the child process do not terminate in linux
@user269867: Since I wrote my answer, you have edited your question to replace sleep with wait inside your polling loop. I will repeat my advice, but more clearly this time: Remove the polling loop. As @dannysauer commented, you should just wait. wait without any arguments will wait for all child processes, so you don't need to save child process PIDs.

comment Why don't the symbolic links in kvm autostart not work
I think I can see what you're trying to do: You want your database to be up before your application, which depends on the database, comes up. The problem with your solution is that simply starting the VMs in a particular order does not guarantee anything about when the services they provide will actually become available. You could start the db VM well before the app VM, and it could still happen that the database is not yet ready when the application attempts to connect to it. A better solution would be to design the application to wait for the database to become available.
