Sometimes the systemctl command gets stuck when stopping ntripcaster service
|Reported by:||ljbade||Owned by:||stoecker|
I have installed the professional ntripcaster release 2.0.31 on an AWS EC2 server instance running Ubuntu 18.04
I followed the readme and added the ntripcaster scripts/ntripcaster.service file to /etc/systemd/system
It works fine most of the time and the service always starts fine after a system reboot.
However sometimes after I have edited the configuration files in /usr/local/ntripcaster/config I find the "systemctl restart ntripcaster.service" command hangs.
If I check the systemctl status it says the ntripcaster service is stuck in the stopping state with no logs to indicate the issue.
If I do a "systemctl stop ntripcaster.service" then "systemctl start ntripcaster.service" the chance of it getting stuck is lower but it does still happen occasionally.
To fix the stuck state I end up rebooting the server and everything then starts up again without issue.
I don't think I have had this command get stuck if I haven't modified the config files, but can't be 100% certain.
It should be fairly easy to recreate this as my config is rather basic with only a handful of mountpoints, users and groups. I haven't changed anything in ntripcaster.conf except for the host name, and basic contact details.
P.S. the version dropdown below didn't have 2.0.31 so I just selected another version.
