How to auto-start SSL-enabled Directory Server?

I have a defense customer requesting for their Sun Directory Server 5.2 to be SSL-enabled.

$ /ds/slapd-DEF/start-slapd

He doesn't like this. He wants the Directory Service to be started automatically upon system reboots.

Well, there is a workaround:

1. $ cd /ds/alias
2. $ vi slapd-DEF-pin.txt
3. Enter the following into the text file:
    Internal (Software) Token:mysecretpassword
4. $ chmod 600 slapd-DEF-pin.txt

Restart the Directory Server. You're done!

PS: Make sure the naming convention of the PIN file is strictly adhered to:
