Synchrony does not start automatically upon reboot on the Confluence Data Center Edited

After provisioning Confluence Data Center, and installing Synchrony as a service I have noticed that it does not start when synchrony service has not been stopped explicitly. This happens eg. upon synchrony server reboot.

Cause:

Orphaned synchrony.pid file has not been cleaned and it is preventing service start upon reboot.

Solution:

To give the robustness to synchrony service, I have added couple of lines, which cleans up orphaned pid file when it is detected that synchrony has not been running.

#!/bin/bash

## CUSTOM VARIABLES - BEGIN
PIDFILE='/opt/atlassian/synchrony/synchrony.pid'
DAEMON='synchro+'

## CUSTOM VARIABLES - END

# Synchrony Linux service controller script
cd "/opt/atlassian/synchrony"

case "$1" in
start)

## CUSTOM PART - BEGIN
## Remove orphaned PID file, upon reboot, if synchrony service not already running
if [ $(ps -ef | grep $DAEMON | grep -v grep | wc -l) -ne 1 ] \
&& [ -f $PIDFILE ]
then
rm -f $PIDFILE
fi

## CUSTOM PART - END
/sbin/runuser -m synchrony -c "./start-synchrony.sh"
;;
stop)
/sbin/runuser -m synchrony -c "./stop-synchrony.sh"
;;
restart)
/sbin/runuser -m synchrony -c "./stop-synchrony.sh"
/sbin/runuser -m synchrony -c "./start-synchrony.sh"
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
exit 1
;;
esac

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
