Request to change the default of init script of TSA services in order not to output message when issue "chkconfig on" command

"Request to change the default of init script of TSA services in order not to output error messages when issuing "chkconfig on" command. "

When we issue "chkconfig on" command at TSA environment, we receive some messages from insserv shown as follows.

insserv: Service network is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service ctrmc
insserv: Service syslog is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service ctrmc

This message comes out as an output because the service of the prerequisites are not defined starting at the specified runlevel.

For example, script of ctrmc includes starting of ctrmc at runlevel 4 (Default-Start: 4), but syslog and network that are included in prerequisites (Required-Start: $network $syslog) do not start at runlevel 4 by default.

Ctrmc init script path :
/usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rc_ctrmc

Ctrmc init script INIT INFO :
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ctrmc
# Required-Start: $network $syslog
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Description: Resource Monitoring and Control services
### END INIT INFO

If there are no impacts for not starting TSA services at runlevel 4, we want a change in the default of init script like shown as follows, so that TSA services do no start.

Ctrmc init script INIT INFO :
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ctrmc
# Required-Start: $network $syslog
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 2 3 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Description: Resource Monitoring and Control services
### END INIT INFO

According to /etc/inittab, runlevel 4 is not used by default. So we think that any TSA services shouldn't be started in it by default.
