Add following: cat /etc/systemd/system/ohasd.service


Description=ohasd daemon


ExecStart=/etc/init.d/init.ohasd run >/dev/null 2>&1

Reload the deamon: systemctl daemon-reload

Enable the ohasd: systemctl enable ohasd.service systemctl start ohasd.service

Check if it is running: ps -ef|grep ohas

Run the root.sh script again

  • Thanks, I got the error [root@lrma086 grid]# systemctl enable ohasd.service The unit files have no [Install] section. They are not meant to be enabled using systemctl. Possible reasons for having this kind of units are: 1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's .wants/ or .requires/ directory. 2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has a requirement dependency on it. 3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer, D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...). – malatesh Oct 22 '15 at 7:39
