      Description

      Hello,

      After upgrading our dev cluster to MariaDB 10.1 I discovered that MaxScale would no longer start up when using the init script. (I don't think the upgrade is relevant to this problem, but thought I should mention it.)

      Nothing gets logged in the maxscale log file when attempting to start it this way.

      $ sudo /sbin/service maxscale start
      Starting MaxScale: [FAILED]

      I am however able to start it as the maxscale user without any problems:

      -bash-4.1$ maxscale -d --user=maxscale
      Info : MaxScale will be run in the terminal process.
      Configuration file : /etc/maxscale.cnf
      Log directory : /var/log/maxscale
      Data directory : /var/lib/maxscale
      Module directory : /usr/lib64/maxscale
      Service cache : /var/cache/maxscale

      What could be wrong?

      Edited to add:
      I should add that SELinux is running in permissive mode, so that shouldn't be a problem:

      $ sestatus
      SELinux status: enabled
      SELinuxfs mount: /selinux
      Current mode: permissive
      Mode from config file: enforcing
      Policy version: 24
      Policy from config file: targeted

      Also, running the init script directly gives the same error:

      $ sudo /etc/init.d/maxscale start
      Starting MaxScale: [FAILED]
