    Cannot accept EULA because systemd not running

    Axel Vandevelde

      When I install Tableau Server and I get to the point to accept the EULA, it throws the following error:


      Creating directories and setting permissions...

      Using '/opt/tableau/tableau_server' as the data directory.

      Adding user 'tableau' to group 'tableau'...

      Adding user 'tableau' to group 'tsmadmin'...

      Note: These group membership changes do not take effect in shells already open. For these to take effect, log out of the shell and log back in.

      systemd unit user@1003 is not running. Check /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog.

      Cannot continue installation. Please contact Tableau Support.



      If I do a "systemctl status" it says "status: degraded" and when I do a "systemctl status user@1003.service", this is the result:


      user@1003.service - User Manager for UID 1003

      I tried to do a "systemctl start/restart/reset-failed user@1003.service" but it is still in a failed state. Any ideas?
