A server stack is one type of solution stack — an ordered selection of software that makes it possible to complete a particular task. Like in this post about Restarting process gives ‘start: Rejected send message’ error was one problem in server stack that need for a solution. Below are some tips in manage your linux server when you find problem about linux, azure, , , .

In a VM procured through Azure Cloud Services, the status of a process called walinuxagent upon doing service walinuxagent status is:

walinuxagent stop/waiting

Next I do service walinuxagent start. I end up getting:

start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.1551" (uid=1000 pid=59402 comm="start walinuxagent ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init ")

Can someone help out with diagnosing and fixing this issue? Essentially, I added swapfile settings to walinuxagent, and I’m now trying to restart it.

Do you mean you just modify waagent.conf to add swap file?
If yes, we can remove walinuxagent and re-install it, then modify waagent.conf to add swap file.

To delete configuration and data files of walinuxagent and it’s dependencies from Ubuntu trusty:

sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove walinuxagent

Then use apt-get to install walinuxagent:

apt-get install walinuxagent

then check the walinuxagent status.

Update:

As a workaround, we can copy a new waagent.conf file to this VM /etc/waagent.conf Then use sudo service walinuxagent start to start waagent.
