Why does the "service" command doesn't return any output ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Service command on system is not returning any results.
  • Have checked with multiple services, tried status, stop, restart, but no output is displayed.
  • Coreutils package has been re-installed but nothing works
[root@test ~]# service sshd status
[root@test ~]#
  • The command is working on a similar system that was cloned from the same template.
