These environment variables affect the operation of the silo, and since the processes that are using them include both the commands the user will enter and the processes that are spawned from nsrd, they need to be set in a location where they will be in place when nsrd is started. The three DAS_ variables are used by libstlemass, while dasadmin uses ACI_MEDIA_TYPE instead of DAS_MEDIUM.
For Solaris, the definitions should be placed in /etc/rc.2/S95networker.
For AIX, the definitions should be placed in /etc/rc.nsr.
For HPUX, the definitions should be placed in /sbin/rc2.d/S900networker.
