As the Splunk farm grows we end up with servers for which the boot-start was not enabled and for heaven’s sake, splunk started as root. How do I validate that the boot-start was enabled? Hopefully across the cluster…

I'm not 100% sure if startwebserver is boot-start

Sorry... startwebserver means only Web (aka :8000) I guess. Does it really imply boot-start?
On our Linux machines the /etc/rc.d/init.d/splunk script exists on the servers which have the boot-start enabled.
