Thought I would share the script I'm using to start/stop the indiserver on my Odroid (will work on pretty much any Linux disto I believe).

#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          <NAME>
# Required-Start:    $local_fs $network $named $time $syslog
# Required-Stop:     $local_fs $network $named $time $syslog
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Description:       Indi Server startup script
### END INIT INFO
 
SCRIPT="indiserver indi_atik_ccd indi_qhy_ccd indi_sx_wheel indi_fcusb_focuser indi_eqmod_telescope"
RUNAS=root
NAME=IndiServer
 
PIDFILE=/var/run/$NAME.pid
LOGFILE=/var/log/$NAME.log
 
start() {
  if [ -f $PIDFILE ] && kill -0 $(cat $PIDFILE); then
    echo 'Service already running' >&2
    return 1
  fi
  echo 'Starting service…' >&2
  local CMD="$SCRIPT &>> \"$LOGFILE\" & echo \$!"
  su -c "$CMD" $RUNAS > "$PIDFILE"
  echo 'Service started' >&2
}
 
stop() {
  if [ ! -f "$PIDFILE" ] || ! kill -0 $(cat "$PIDFILE"); then
    echo 'Service not running' >&2
    return 1
  fi
  echo 'Stopping service…' >&2
  kill -15 $(cat "$PIDFILE") && rm -f "$PIDFILE"
  echo 'Service stopped' >&2
}
 
uninstall() {
  echo -n "Are you really sure you want to uninstall this service? That cannot be undone. [yes|No] "
  local SURE
  read SURE
  if [ "$SURE" = "yes" ]; then
    stop
    rm -f "$PIDFILE"
    echo "Notice: log file was not removed: '$LOGFILE'" >&2
    update-rc.d -f <NAME> remove
    rm -fv "$0"
  fi
}
 
status() {
        printf "%-50s" "Checking $NAME..."
    if [ -f $PIDFILE ]; then
        PID=$(cat $PIDFILE)
            if [ -z "$(ps axf | grep ${PID} | grep -v grep)" ]; then
                printf "%s\n" "The process appears to be dead but pidfile still exists"
            else
                echo "Running, the PID is $PID"
            fi
    else
        printf "%s\n" "Service not running"
    fi
}
 
 
case "$1" in
  start)
    start
    ;;
  stop)
    stop
    ;;
  status)
    status
    ;;
  uninstall)
    uninstall
    ;;
  restart)
    stop
    start
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|restart|uninstall}"
esac


Someone might find the above useful.
You do need to edit the line "SCRIPT" and alter the command with whatever indiserver you are running.

Good job, thank you Gonzothegreat

I create mine in /etc/init.d/indi and then :
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/indi
update-rc.d indi defaults

Now, I plug my stuff, I power my Raspberry, Indi starts himself and voilà !
Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon using PPA for latest KStars-bleeding and INDI

That's works perfect! I now have my second DSLR running on it's own RPi unattended. It just starts when I power on my Astro Photo rig and my Main RPi with the rest of the devices just connects to the server and use the camera!
