There should be. The Toronto DBAs are not really Linux heavies. I'll
check the symlinks. Normally, when installing software, the startup and
shutdown scripts should be installed by the package manager. This case,
the script had to be modified. The issue is that I don't know 100%, but
since I no longer can count on prompt support, I need to learn.
