I am trying to follow this guide to install and setup blackbox_exporter: https://devconnected.com/how-to-install-and-configure-blackbox-exporter-for-prometheus/
I have followed everything and can manually run the command from the systemd service and get it to run.
However when I try to run systemctl start blackbox.service and then check the status, it fails with exit code 203/EXEC
I check the permissions on
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 blackbox blackbox 17050332 Nov 11 10:27 /usr/local/bin/blackbox_exporter
I can run the command from terminal as such just fine:
/usr/local/bin/blackbox_exporter --config.file=/etc/blackbox/blackbox.yml --web.listen-address=:9115
Here is my systemd service:
[Unit] Description=Blackbox Exporter Service Wants=network-online.target After=network-online.target [Service] Type=simple User=blackbox Group=blackbox ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/blackbox_exporter \ --config.file=/etc/blackbox/blackbox.yml \ --web.listen-address=":9115" Restart=always [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
journalctl -u blackbox.service:
Apr 30 08:26:55 localhost systemd: Started Blackbox Exporter Service. Apr 30 08:26:55 localhost systemd: blackbox.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=203/EXEC Apr 30 08:26:55 localhost systemd: blackbox.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
I am using CentOS 8.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
