Oracle VM : ovs-agent and xend Services Fail to Start on Reboot (Doc ID 2566605.1)

Last updated on MARCH 29, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.6 and later
Linux x86-64


The ovs-agent and the xend services do not start automatically after the server is rebooted.

#/etc/init.d/ovs-agent status
log server is stopped
notificationserver server is stopped
remaster server is stopped
monitor server is stopped
ha server is stopped
stats server is stopped
xmlrpc server is stopped
fsstats server is stopped
apparentsize server is stopped

# /etc/init.d/xend status
xend daemon is stopped

The services are set to start on boot in chkconfig

# chkconfig --list | grep xend
xend 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
xendomains 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
# chkconfig --list | grep ovs-agent
ovs-agent 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

However, both the services start normally when they are run manually
