How can I verify if the boot-start is already enabled for a machine without restarting the machine?

On Windows check the services for splunkd and see that it is set to Automatic.

On Unix, check the splunkd service configuration. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll look.

This command will check both init-d and systemd on unix. Without the sudo should work on windows.

sudo ./splunk display boot-start

Check /etc/rc.d/rc3.d for a Sxxsplunk link.
In unix, the 'S' stands for start, followed by an order number, followed by the service name. This folder contains links to the actual service control file. So if you want to remove the auto start feature you delete the link, not the control file. To enable autostart then create the link from this folder.

I want to check on UNIX, can you please give more details on how I can verify?
