rc.log problem about autostart script

On HP-UX, we add some our autostart scripts in the system script under /sbin/rc*.d directory. The output of application is redirected to /dev/null in our script,but once the application has been startup with the OS starting,its ouput is redirected to the /etc/rc.log finally and cause the rc.log too large, anyone know how to write the output to null file instead of rc.log?

Near the top of each added startup script do:
exec > /dev/null 2>&1

Thanks Perderabo, "exec > /dev/null 2>&1" works ok!
