Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-13437) Cassandra not a registered systemd service after install
Date Wed, 12 Apr 2017 14:40:41 GMT
Stefan Podkowinski created CASSANDRA-13437:

             Summary: Cassandra not a registered systemd service after install
                 Key: CASSANDRA-13437
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Documentation and Website, Packaging
            Reporter: Stefan Podkowinski

Systemd is providing limited compatability for sysv scripts. Traditional init scripts will
in this case get wrapped by a generated unit file via systemd-sysv-generator, once systemd
has found such a script. But this won't happen automatically and that's why you won't be able
to start Cassandra using {{systemctl start cassandra}} after installing the RPM.

The most straight forward way to make this happen is by running {{systemctl daemon-reload}}.
We could either run the command from the post-install script or ask the user to do this. My
suggestion would be to *add installation instructions* to the download page specifically for
RPM based packages that would stick with init.d terminology and ask the user to start Cassandra
with {{service cassandra start}}. This will transperantley trigger {{systemctl daemon-reload}}
and start the service.
We should also mention to enable starting Cassandra on boot (if desired) by using {{chkconfig
cassandra on}}.
