I have done the the following script in the following /etc/systemd/system/nagios.service

Description=Nagios Core Monitoring Daemon

ExecStart=/usr/lib/systemd/scripts/nagios start
ExecStop=/usr/lib/systemd/scripts/nagios stop
ExecReload=/usr/lib/systemd/scripts/nagios reload


Then did the following:
[root@nag nagios]# systemctl stop nagios
[root@nag nagios]# systemctl start nagios
Job for nagios.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status nagios.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Can you please assist me with this? I am running CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core) and nagios 4.3.2 core.

Try using the following in the nagios.service file for starting / stoping the Nagios Daemon.
Adjust the paths as needed.
Code: Select all
Description=Nagios Network Monitoring

# Verify Nagios config before start as upstream suggested
ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/nagios -v /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/nagios -d /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg
ExecStopPost=/usr/bin/rm -f /var/spool/nagios/cmd/nagios.cmd
