I have a VPS instance running Ubuntu Server version 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).
I have installed munin and munin-node. It is properly configured. It is working fine.
The problem is that I need to run the command
sudo service munin-node start for it to start.
If I reboot the system (either with
sudo reboot now or using a web-based control panel), this service does not start. I need to run the command above for it to start.
I tried "everything" to troubleshoot, with no success.
1) It SHOULD simply start as many other programs I installed in this VPS using aptitude (ProFTPd, NginX, MySQL, monit, Icecast, Postfix, and lots of others). It does not.
2) I tried adding
service munin-node start at
/etc/rc.local as I have successfully done to start another service. It does not start!
3) I ran the command
update-rc.d munin-node defaults. It sounded like everything was ok! After a reboot... it does not start!
4) I ran
grep -r munin * to see everything munin-related at
In my few years as sys admin, I have never been so clueless like this time.
What is really impressive is that a simple
service munin-node start (or equivalent) once the system is up and running... and the service starts normally.
I am about to try this tip from another question, if everything else fails...
