How do I start local daemons at AIX-system startup?!

AIX does neither use the BSD style rc.local file nor the System V style /etc/rc*.d startup files directories. To add local daemons to the system startup sequence in a BSD rc.local style use the following command to create an /etc/inittab entry:

# mkitab -i rcnfs “rclocal:2:wait:/etc/rc.local >/dev/console 2>&1”
# touch /etc/rc.local
# chmod 700 /etc/rc.local
Then put the command lines to start the daemons in /etc/rc.local.
OR,
# If installing this file on an AIX server, edit /etc/inittab to add
# the following entry so that this script is called during level 2 boot:
# veritas:2:wait:/etc/rc.veritas.aix
