Zabbix agent does not start after reboot



  • Ever since the upgrade to 2.4x I need to stop / start the zabbix agent.
    This is on all the 5 2.4 Pfsense packages I have out there.

    In the log there is no indication that it tried to start the agent.

    I have these files

    ls -altr /usr/local/etc/rc.d/zabbix_agentd*

    
    -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  1837 Oct  8 23:52 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/zabbix_agentd
    -rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   772 Oct 31 12:42 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/zabbix_agentd.sh
    

    The file /usr/local/etc/rc.d/zabbix_agentd.sh is created upon selecting the checkbox in the pfsense's webIF.
    The file is removed after unchecking it.

    This explains the recent date of the zabbix_agentd.sh file
    I have no explanation why it does not start the daemon upon startup of the system.



  • Is this still happening?

    zabbix_agentd.sh is the rc script from pfSense.
    zabbix_agentd is the rc installed with the FreeBSD port.
