First, consider what you are trying to do and why.

Is it really necessary? What are you trying to achieve?

Explain a little more.

The instant answer is templates. But first think about the comments above.

Then please read the manual.

https://wiki.koozali.org/Template-driven_configuration_system

https://wiki.koozali.org/SME_Server:Documentation:Developers_Manual:Chapter8

Etc.

1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.

Why not use /etc/rc.d/rc.local ? I works for me...

I used crontab @reboot... on SME7 - SME9 without any problems.

I am not using it on SME 10 because I have not re-established the service I was starting in SME9 - but I would expect it to work.

Still be nice to know what the OP was trying to achieve.

Often it is the start of an XY Info issue :-)
