Job for suricata.service invalid

NethServer Version: 7.6.1810
Module: IPS

Hi all,
I’ve installed IPS but not activated.


Every day I get the following message as mail:


Job for suricata.service invalid.

Can somebody tell me which logs are important to find the cause of this problem?

Pulledpork has a daily job to download rules. In this job suricata is reloaded to apply a new config but if suricata is not running you get Job for suricata.service invalid.

At the end of /etc/e-smith/events/actions/nethserver-pulledpork-apply suricata is reloaded.

This is called from /etc/cron.daily/pulledpork.

Cron then just mails the output. I think you can ignore it.

If you really don’t like it you may edit the systemctl reload suricata line at the end of /etc/e-smith/events/actions/nethserver-pulledpork-apply to

systemctl is-active --quiet suricata && systemctl reload suricata

but an update of pulledpork may overwrite it.
