Red Hat 7 systemctl start of ODBC server
« on: March 31, 2020, 04:54:18 PM »
Can anyone please post a sample of a systemctl script that starts the pvxiosvr program?  What we have either gives an error trying to run the pvxiosvr program (states it is not a binary file) or it just does not run at all.  It appears that starting from the command line the program will run.

It's version 5.1 or 5.2...

While a systemctl file is nice, why not just use inittab or in Centos (and most other Linux systems) add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local?

If you do need to use systemctl here is are some links that may help

Mike,

We did set up an rc.local file that worked.  We have not rebooted until today.  Please see contents of rc.local below.  I simply did an init 6 to reboot.  The system displayed "A stop job is running for /etc/rc.d/rc.local  Compatibility  (9 min 9s  / no limit). Thoughts? I don't think the system ever rebooted and we had to hard boot it.

# cat rc.local
#!/bin/bash
# THIS FILE IS ADDED FOR COMPATIBILITY PURPOSES
#
# It is highly advisable to create own systemd services or udev rules
# to run scripts during boot instead of using this file.
#
# In contrast to previous versions due to parallel execution during boot
# this script will NOT be run after all other services.
#
# Please note that you must run 'chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local' to ensure
# that this script will be executed during boot.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local
exec /usr/pxpiosvr/pxpiosvr -f /usr/pxpiosvr/pxpiosvr.conf -p 20222 &
[root@paper-rbconverting-com rc.d]#

Thanks,
Sam

FYI, to resolve this, I added an ExecStop statement to rc-local.service.
