After upgrading to 20.2 CAPC sso service will not start
Only mysql service is running.

When we try to start sso we see this error:
Reading file /etc/systemd/system/caperfcenter_sso.service
Job for caperfcenter_sso.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status caperfcenter_sso.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
Failed to start service caperfcenter_sso

When we run journalctl -xe, we see this:

Dx NetOps Performance Management 20.2


This error means that the service was not properly registered to systemd during the install or upgrade.


Re-register the services: 

/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/sso/bin/caperfcenter_sso remove
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/sso/bin/caperfcenter_sso install
Then try to start just the sso service.

/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/sso/bin/caperfcenter_sso start

If it works, repeat the process for the other 3 services.
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/EM/bin/caperfcenter_eventmanager remove
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/EM/bin/caperfcenter_eventmanager install
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/DM/bin/caperfcenter_devicemanager remove
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/DM/bin/caperfcenter_ devicemanager install
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/PC/bin/caperfcenter_console remove
/opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/PC/bin/caperfcenter_console install
