Domino on Linux: Updated/additional lnsnmp Start/Stop-Script that is compatible with systemd based Linux OS

Currently, there is only a lnsnmp.sh Script (/opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/lnsnmp.sh) shipped with Domino that does not work with systemd based Linux OS like CentOS 7 / RHEL 7). 

The Documentation ( https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/de/SSKTMJ_10.0.1/admin/admn_configuringthedominosnmpagentforlinux_t.html () works only for SysVinit-based older CentOS / RHEL Releases).

    It's simple to make systemd service, but the lnsnmp.sh script does not work with systemd based Linux OS.

    systemd[1]: Starting LNSNMP(SNMP) Daemon....
    lnsnmp.sh[36098]: Don't know how to start/stop lnsnmp on this version of Linux.
    systemd[1]: lnsnmp.service: Control process exited, code=exited status=1
    systemd[1]: Failed to start LNSNMP(SNMP) Daemon..
    systemd[1]: lnsnmp.service: Unit entered failed state.
    systemd[1]: lnsnmp.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

    Also the lnsnmp.sh contains old default path which hasn’t been used in many years.

    As discussed on https://atnotes.de/index.php/topic,61967.0.html Ulrich Krause posted an service-Definition for lnsnmp that could be used directly (or as a base) for Shipping with Domino:
