How does sapcontrol know what profile to use?

When starting MDM, we first start a Service:

sapcontrol -nr 00 -function StartService SID

This service uses an Instance Profile for startup.  (ie SID_MDS00_hostname).  How does the above sapcontrol command know what the Instance Profile name is?  My service is not starting because it cannot find the profile it needs. 

Thanks.

    Found the answer on the help page for SAP Start Service.  The /usr/sap/sapservices file has the path to the profile that is used for starting the sapstartsrv service that mds, mdis and mdss will each use.
