Failed to Start Sensu Services "Failed to start LSB: Sensu monitoring framework server"

Hi,

We are running a feasibility study for Sensu and ELK platform and we were finally able to set up Sensu after running into some minor issues., right now we can’t start / restart sensu services for some reason and we’ve been stuck to this for a day now. Hope you could give us some advice. Thanks in advance!

Expected Behavior:

Sensu-Server started

Sensu-api started

Current Behavior:

After initializing startup, the following message is returned:

“Job for sensu-server.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status sensu-server.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.”

status sensu-server.service –

(fyi, the same happens when trying to restart other sensu services)

Environment

  • Sensu version used: Sensu 0.27
  • Operating System and version (e.g. Ubuntu 14.04): Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • Transport and runtime versions (e.g. RabbitMQ 3.6.2 on Erlang 18.2): RabbitMQ 3.6.6

The “Detected TCP connection failure: Errno::ECONNREFUSED” for transport indicates that it RabbitMQ is either not running or sensu isn’t configured to talk to it.

The most common issue I’ve seen is SSL/non-ssl port confusion.
