Raintank Probe Service Doesn't Start on CentOS

yum install worked w/o issue. Updated .ini w/o issue. But:

[root@ip-172-opt]# service raintank-probe start
raintank-probe: unrecognized service

What are the next to start this executable and configure it as a service?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,

What version of Centos are you running?

For centos6, can you try running

initctl reload-configuration
service raintank-probe start

for Centos7

systemctl daemon-reload
service raintank-probe start

Hi Awoods,

So this is Amazon Linux, which is based on CentOS.

I ran: (systemctl is not on this, so must be based on CentOS)

[ec2-user@ip-172-31-23-217 ~]$ sudo initctl reload-configuration
[ec2-user@ip-172-31-23-217 ~]$ sudo service raintank-probe start
raintank-probe: unrecognized service

What should I do next to get this running? Can you point me to the binary folders?

Sounds like Amazon Linux doesn’t behave as expected. Your issue looks to be the same as the problem discussed at https://serverfault.com/questions/655395/ec2-linux-any-and-all-upstart-jobs-returning-unrecognised-service

so just run

sudo initctl start raintank-probe

Doh…thanks for googling for me :blush:
