scAgent SuSe Linux systemd service

[ Edited ]

We are using SuSe Linux 12.1 which uses systemd for service daemons.

We need to start scAgent with the OS (reboot, auto restart on scAgent error)

 

For scAgent 4.3.0 there is only info available for sysvinit which doesn't match for systemd.

 

 

We have created the following script/usr/lib/systemd/system/ScAgent.service

 

[Unit]
Description=Snapcreator Agent

[Service]
ExecStart=/opt/snapcreator/scAgent4.3.0/bin/scAgent start
ExecStop=/opt/snapcreator/scAgent4.3.0/bin/scAgent stop

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

When we run the service it stops automatically:

 

Running:

Sep 11 08:25:28  scAgent[26403]: Agent: Stopped

When we check the scAgent script directly with

scAgent status

it seems to run as long as the service ist running and then is stopped after the systemd service stops.

 

 

running:

 

#systemctl start scAgent.service
#./scAgent status Checking Status of scAgent: Watchdog: Running Agent: Running

after a few seconds:

 

#./scAgent status

Checking Status of scAgent:
    Watchdog: Stopped
       Agent: Stopped

 

As long as we run 'scAgent start' dircectly/without systemd it is running fine...

 

Does anybody have a solution to this?

Are the scripts at /bin not intended to be used with s systemd script?

Re: scAgent SuSe Linux systemd service

it works with this systemd config:

 

[Service]
ExecStart=/opt/NetApp/scAgent4.3.1/bin/scAgent start
RemainAfterExit=yes
ExecStop=/opt/NetApp/scAgent4.3.1/bin/scAgent stop
