So my help desk aka Junior Systems guy was trying to use systemctl on an Ubuntu 14.04 box. Thing is – 14.04 doesn’t default to systemctl/systemd.
You have to do it the old school way – look at /etc/init.d and /etc/rc3.d
To decode that last – rc is the run level. In fact rc3 is multi-user with networking.
Too funny. Now Ubuntu 16.04 is systemd so you have to use systemctl to do everything. Bit of a learning curve for an old school Unix/Linux guy like me.
