I am following steps from juju startup with lcx.

At first step of juju bootstrap it gives error as:

ERROR juju.provider.local environ.go:435 could not install mongo service: exec ["start" "--system" "juju-db-xxxx-local"]: exit status 1 (start: Unable to connect to system bus: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory)

mongo db service as such works fine no errors also command which is trying to run is executing successfully

service juju-db-xxxxx-local start
juju-db-xxxxx-local start/running, process 8734

Thanks, However it says dbus is already the newest version., I could also run mongodb standalone it works as expected. This looks more like issue of user juju is using to start service, However not able to solve it. – Vikrant Pawar Jan 7 '14 at 5:19
I removed dbus and install it again, and it started working :) – Vikrant Pawar Jan 7 '14 at 5:49
