Below commands to start the zabbix server service.

To enable and start the service :

$sudo systemctl enable zabbix-server.service
$sudo systemctl start zabbix-server.service
$sudo systemctl restart zabbix-server.service

To check the status:

#systemctl status zabbix-server.service

please use the below commands. If the above commands doesn’t work,

$sudo /etc/init.d/zabbix-server enable
$sudo /etc/init.d/zabbix-server start
$sudo /etc/init.d/zabbix-server restart

Let me if you have any queries..

  • Thank you for your response. I tried the above commands, however I am getting a reply as following:

    Job for zabbix-server.service failed because a configured resource limit was exceeded. See “systemctl status zabbix-server.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

    Not sure what the issue is. Would be very grateful to receive help on that.

    Thank you

Can you share screen shot while starting the server what is the error you are getting?
