In some instances it is desirable to have PolySync Manager start when the machine boots.
The crontab utility on most Linux systems is designed to allow a user to trigger script a scheduled basis or on a per-event basis. To edit the crontab, log in as your normal user and open a terminal to execute the following.
$ crontab -e
Starting PolySync Manager At System Boot
To start PolySync Manager when the system boots add the following line to the crontab. Environment variables such as PSYNC_HOME cannot be used within crontab, you must supply an absolute file path to the script that starts the PolySync Manager. We've supplied a script in the PolySync install, which defaults to /usr/local/polysync
Save and exit crontab. The next machine boot PolySync Manager will be loaded and all enabled nodes will be spawned.
It's important that crontab is not edited as sudo-user, ensuring that PolySync nodes are spawned by the normal user account.
