I got the following error when I attempted “vagrant up” on the standard ubuntu/vivid64 with virtualbox:
initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused
The full error stream is here: https://pastee.org/hnh8x
Be sure to say hello to our old friend
stdin: is not a tty.
Please find the relevant
Vagrantfile here: https://pastee.org/sfyb7, created with
vagrant init --force ubuntu/vivid64 https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/vagrant/vivid/current/vivid-server-cloudimg-amd64-vagrant-disk1.box.
Can I fix this error with Saltstack provisioning? If so, how?
The closest bit of Saltstack documentation I found related to Upstart follows: http://docs.saltstack.com/en/latest/ref/modules/all/salt.modules.upstart.html
The Ubuntu documentation on the subject, here, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers, recommends the installation of the
upstart-sysv package. Is that all that’s required to change back using Saltstack?
The following does not seem to resolve the boot issues:
Is there anything I can add to this to help solve the problem?
