Nrpe "daemonizes" itself. By default it runs in background and fork to another process to do the work and let the parent die. The process forked is inherited after by init.
In this way the SRC think the nrpe process started by it has died.
This patch is a solution to support Nrpe in daemon mode managed by SRC.
The patch are produced by the AIX diff command (option: diff -c).
Nrpe is started by start -s nrpe and stopped by stopsrc -s nrpe.

To create the subsystem do the following command:

NrpeBin=/usr/local/nagios/bin/nrpe
NrpeCfg=/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg
rmssys -s nrpe 2>&1 >/dev/null
mkssys -s nrpe -p "$NrpeBin" -a "-c $NrpeCfg -d -s" -u 0 -d -S -n 15 -f 9 -Q -R -G %{nsgrp}
startsrc -s nrpe
lssrc -s nrpe

The parameter "-s" is a added to specify to run against AIX SRC.
