Data Starting Processes

I am currently running SCO OpenServer.

When the machine is restart it automatically intitiates processes that allow me to use the ARCserv backup software... Recently, these process were killed and I would like to restart them. The problem is I dont know the name or location of the files invoked at start up..

Is there a way to start these processes, maybe by running the startup script, without downing the machine...

thanks.

I assume these programs start up on boot?
If so, depending on where your system
startup commands/scripts are, for instance
in "/etc/inittab" and/or in some "/etc/rc.d"
directory, you should be able to find the
command(s) used to start this.
