This script can start all instances of eDirectory on a server at boot time, and can shut them all down gracefully at shutdown.
case "$1" in
echo "Useage: $0" \
Copy the script into a file in /etc/init.d and flag it as executable (chmod +x)
You can now configure it to stop / start all instances at desired run levels (I used "System Services (Runlevel)" from yast to do this, setting it to run at levels 3 and 5)
