I used this upstart in ubuntu 14.04 and it worked perfectly fine:

start on runlevel [2345]

        cd /media/sf_ACEBot
        exec /usr/bin/mono /media/sf_ACEBot/ACE\ Bot.exe >> /media/sf_ACEBot/log.txt
end script

Now I want to have the same thing in ubuntu 16.04 but in systemd. I have written the service below:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/mono /media/sf_ACEBot/ACe\ Bot.exe


There are two problems:

  1. How can I redirect the output? the >> mark does not work.
  2. When I start the service, it waits for my exec to stop. I mean I can only press Ctl+C which stops my service.

Please help me to fix my systemd.
