I normally boot up my RHEL 6.4 instance, and then start the following command

su - mqm

Open in new window


How do I get this to occur automatically upon bootup (in such a way that the su - mqm command will invoke the .profile ?

Thanks

I assume you're logging in as root and then su'ing to mqm, but why not just log in as user mqm to begin with and then you do not need to su at all?

If you log in as the correct user, you will automatically get your .profile read.
