Source: [WayBack] SUSE 12.3 – How to auto start services…?

This is on my system:

revue:~ # systemctl is-enabled shellinabox
shellinabox.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install
Executing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install is-enabled shellinabox
shellinabox  off
revue:~ # rcshellinabox status
Checking for service shellinabox                                                       unused
● shellinabox.service - LSB: shellinabox
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/shellinabox)
Active: inactive (dead)
Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
revue:~ # rcshellinabox start
redirecting to systemctl start shellinabox.service
revue:~ # chkconfig shellinabox
shellinabox  off
revue:~ # chkconfig shellinabox on
revue:~ # chkconfig shellinabox
shellinabox  on
