Installing Optim Manager on CentOS

by Matt Simons, Practice Lead

I was setting up a new CentOS machine the other day in our lab to use as an Optim 9.1 Server (now, CentOS is not an officially supported operating system for running the Optim Server components - its true - but we use it in our lab environments since its the closest thing to Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and I hit upon an issue.  See, all of the components (Runtime Services, WebSphere, Optim Manager, Optim Connection Manager) work fine except for the process of installing the WAS-CE instance as a daemon (I hate having to remember to start things every time).
