    Dear All

    When I installed my server with CloudLinux 7, I went through the steps for preparing it to run cPanel and got this error:

    [root@webhost01 ~]# iptables-save > ~/firewall.rules
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl stop firewalld.service
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl disable firewalld.service
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1.service.
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/basic.target.wants/firewalld.service.
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl stop NetworkManager.service
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl disable NetworkManager.service
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service.
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/NetworkManager.service.
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service.
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl enable network.service
    network.service is not a native service, redirecting to /sbin/chkconfig.
    Executing /sbin/chkconfig network on
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl start network.service
    [root@webhost01 ~]# systemctl start ipaliases.service
    Failed to start ipaliases.service: Unit not found.


    I tried various things, but could not work out how to get it to start, so proceeded with the installation anyway.

    Now that the server is up and running I am getting the following alert emailed to me:

    Service Name ipaliases
    Service Status failed
    Notification The service “ipaliases” appears to be down.
    Service Check Method The system’s command to check or to restart this service failed.
    Number of Restart Attempts 1


    Is this something that I need to worry about?

    Many thanks

    John

    You could try:
    Code:
    systemctl daemon-reload
    Then
    Code:
    systemctl status ipaliases

    Hello,

    Feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look if the previous response isn't helpful.

    Thank you.
