NethServer uses the standard systemd multiuser target.
Software installed with yum should already be configured to start at boot. To check the configuration, execute the systemctl command. The command will display a list of services with their own status.
To enable a service on boot:
systemctl enable mysoftware
To disable a service on boot:
systemctl disable mysoftware
