You are trying to get the status of the LsAgent client running on your Linux devices. You run the following command, but receive an error message: 

  • systemctl status LansweeperAgentService

You are trying to stop/start the Lansweeper service. You run either of these commands. but receive an error message:

  • systemctl stop LansweeperAgentService
  • systemctl start LansweeperAgentService

What happened?

Previously, managing the LsAgent service on a Linux asset was done through these commands:

  • systemctl status LansweeperAgentService
  • systemctl start LansweeperAgentService
  • systemctl stop LansweeperAgentService
  • systemctl enable LansweeperAgentService

However, we recently changed the Linux LsAgent service name. The new commands to run are as follows:

  • systemctl status ls-agent
  • systemctl start ls-agent
  • systemctl stop ls-agent
  • systemctl enable ls-agent
