Allow message brokers to auto-start on boot of Linux

Would like the MDM message brokers to be able to restart on their own after a reboot of a Linux server. Currently have to manually restart after reboot when patches are applied or server is shutdown. Recently switched from windows to Linux on AWS. Windows allows brokers to run as a service. Support says this currently is not possible under Linux. Patches are applied at least once a month. I am able to get everything else except the brokers to auto-start on reboot. We have brokers that handle auto-linking, pre-merge, and unmerge. There is a greater chance that these will not be processed in a timely manner if they are not auto-started. Have over 4 million EIDs in our system.

Current MDM version is 11.6.0.10.
