Service already defines error in Puppet

0 votes

I have this class

class MyClass{
    service{"ServiceName-start":
      name => "ServiceName",
      ensure => "stopped",
    }
    package{"PackageName":
        ensure => "installed",
        require => Service["ServiceName-Start"],
    }
    service{"ServiceName-Stop":
      name =>  "ServiceName",
      ensure => "running",
      require => Package["PackageName"]
    }
}

But I end up with an error:

Duplicate definition: Service[ServiceName] is already defined in file /puppet/mycsass.pp at line 2; cannot redefine at /puppet/myclass.pp:9

Hey @Rohan, try this:

class MyClass {
  exec { "ServiceName-Stop":
    command => "/bin/sh -c '/sbin/service ServiceName stop",
  }
  package{"PackageName":
    ensure => "installed",
    require => Service["ServiceName-Stop"],
  }
  service{"ServiceName-Start":
    name =>  "ServiceName",
    ensure => "running",
    require => Package["PackageName"]
  }
}
