[SOLVED] Radiusd cannot start at the system boot time on Fedora 17

I found that radiusd cannot start at boot time after reboot the server on Fedora 17, but I can start it manually. I checked the log files, and found that mysqld start later than radiusd. So radiusd cannot start, because it needs to connect to mysql.

How to set the sequence of boot services, and make radiusd start after mysqld? After researching and testing, I find the way.

Edit the file /lib/systemd/system/radiusd.service, add mysqld.service at the end of “After” line in “Unit” section, and then reboot the server. The detailed file is as below.

Description=FreeRADIUS high performance RADIUS server. mysqld.service

ExecStartPre=-/bin/chown -R radiusd.radiusd /var/run/radiusd
ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/radiusd -C
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/radiusd -d /etc/raddb
ExecReload=/usr/sbin/radiusd -C
ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
