MongoDB just supports versions of Ubuntu Long Term Support (LTS). The last is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, where the init process is managed by Upstart proprietary of Canonical. However I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 with the Linux standard SystemD init process. So I can't start the MongoDB service on boot.
When I read the service status or try start it, show the message "failed to load":
> systemctl status mongod Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory) Active: inactive (dead) > sudo systemctl start mongod Failed to start mongod.service: Unit mongod.service failed to load: No such file or directory.
I'm running the official MongoDB 3.2 Community Edition (mongodb-org) from https://docs.mongodb.org/master/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/ not the MongoDB 2.6 meta-package (mongodb) from Ubuntu repository.

Someone knows how to start the MongoDB with SystemD?
