  2. In the pingaccess.service file, replace the following variables:
    • ${PA_HOME}
    • ${PA_USER}
    • ${PA_JAVA_HOME}
  3. To allow read-write activity on the service, run:
    chmod 644 /etc/systemd/system/pingaccess.service
  4. To load the systemd service, run:
    systemctl daemon-reload
  5. To enable the service, run:
    systemctl enable pingaccess.service
  6. To start the service, run:
    systemctl start pingaccess.service
