Rhel 8 update_ood_portal question

Hello, I’ve been trying to get OnDemand 2.0 running on a host with RHEL 8, after having successfully run v1 on CentOS 7 successfully for some time.

I’m having some trouble getting to the initial login page on the 2.0 server and I’ve noticed in the RHEL 8 install that when I make changes to ood_portal.yml and run update_ood_portal that the output looks a little off, I’m wondering if this is a sign that I misconfigured something?

Restart the httpd service now.

Suggested command:
sudo systemctl try-restart httpd.service .service

Restart the ondemand-dex service now.

Suggested command:
sudo systemctl restart ondemand-dex.service

The “.service” at the end of the suggested try-restart looks like it’s missing a service name, is this a sign that I may not have a systemd service installed that’s needed? Or is it something I can ignore?

Thanks very much!

Hi Chris.

Thanks for letting us know about this.

It should read sudo systemctl try-restart httpd

Great, thank you Gerald.
