Does it work if you run systemctl after you logged in as root? (So not using sudo.) Though this should not matter at all.

I have openjdk6 here, perhaps that makes a difference... Where is the java binary located?

It's not working here, the related lines in journalctl are here:

I think the problem is that systemd does not sources the /etc/profile.d/ files, where jdk[1] updates PATH and JAVA_HOME. I am not sure what is the best way to solve this.

Can anybody test the unit file, please?

I just found out a service file can be added without hardcoding anything: (see comment 12/10/2012 by Wonder Woofy) - in short: replace the username with '%l', name the servicefile pms@.service and enable or start it using 'pms@<username>.service'. I guess this is what you were looking for?

You have a valid point, but you could also leave the user-line commented out, as is done in the /etc/conf.d/pms-file. I guess systemd will run the process as root if no user is specified. A simple post-install message to fill in the username should not harm anyone, should it? On the other hand, entering the same information in two separate locations could mean trouble...

I do not want to distribute a service file that has a hardcoded user that does not exist by default. So the correct way would be to create a user 'pms' (or call it whatever you like) and use this in the unit file. I will take a look at that when I find some time.

Strike that last comment. Seems to be working just dandy. Maybe the .service-file can be distributed with this package?

After having borked my server installation, I reinstalled it with pure systemd. I gathered the info to accomplish this on the internets and added to the wiki: - The service is started. The journalctl is clean, but I cannot acces the webpage to start the indexing. Any ideas?
