I've installed StreamSets on my CentOs 7 host. Unfortunately I'm not able to start or stop StreamSets with systemctl. If I type into shell systemctl start sdc or systemctl stop sdc I get the message

Failed to stop sdc.service: Unit sdc.service not loaded.

Or do someone know the location of the or * file in the installation directory. I couldn't find any of this files.

Any suggestions?

Did you install SDC using rpm? Or some other way?

When I did install SDC using rpm on RHEL 7, the following 3 instructions worked straight out after yum localinstall:

 sudo systemctl start sdc
 sudo systemctl status sdc
 sudo systemctl is-active sdc

The documentation I followed is at

Hello @kirti, I installed SDC with the Cloudera parcel and Cloudera Manager. Maybe I'll try to install it with the rpm. Thanks for your reply.

Hello @kirti, I tried it out and it worked for me, thanks! I'm also able to change with the rpm installation the admin password inside This was also not possible with the Cloudera parcel. Maybe a bug inside the parcel...

I found out that StreamSets does not support out of the box start/stop services with systemctl. It is possible to do it with Cloudera Manager. Furthermore, I found out that it is possible to start streamsets with streamsets dc. The file is located under $SDC_DIST/libexec/
