Failed to start icingadb-redis.service after update

Hello everyone!

Icinga2 deployed in the LXC-container, based on Debian Bookworm.

After a full upgrade system and all packages (apt update && apt upgrade -y && apt-autoremove -y), I encountered a problem starting the service:

× icingadb-redis.service - Redis database for Icinga DB
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/icingadb-redis.service; enabled; preset: enabled)

I tried to forcefully remove the packages mentioned in the blog, but that didn’t solve the problem.

If run ExecStart from service manually:

/usr/bin/icingadb-redis-server /usr/share/icingadb-redis/icingadb-redis-systemd.conf

then Redis accepts connections and the notification disappears in IcingaWeb2.

IcingaDB packages versions:

icingadb-redis/icinga-bookworm,now 7.0.15-1+debian12 amd64 [installed]
icingadb-web/icinga-bookworm,now 1.1.2-1+debian12 all [installed]
icingadb/icinga-bookworm,now 1.2.0-1+debian12 amd64 [installed]

I tried:

  • systemctl daemon-reload
  • reinstall all icingadb* packages
  • check permissions for /etc/icingadb*
  • compared systemd configs with fresh installed container

Never found any problems…
