We are refreshing our license servers and the new machines run RHEL v7. The existing scripts and documentation are geared for the old sysV configuration. I submitted a service request and was told

"If you used “service mgc start”,  you would now need “systemctl start mgc.service”.  How the Linux OS calls the script has changed. The script itself is still just a shell script. The implementation on your Linux system (file naming, file placement, file ownership, file permissions) may change, but the underlying script is still just a shell script to start a process."

 

That was not very helpful as I don't use "service mgc start" as it has never been mentioned in any of the documentation for Linux based license managers. Does anybody have a startup script for RHEL v7 that can be used by systemd?
