When I check the verticad status is show as in the example below:
# systemctl status verticad
● verticad.service - Vertica server restart oneshot
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/verticad.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: inactive (dead) since Tue 2022-12-27 14:08:51 UTC; 3 weeks 2 days ago
Process: 520 ExecStart=/opt/vertica/sbin/verticad start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Dec 27 14:08:51 my_dr systemd: Started Vertica server restart oneshot.
Release : 22.2
This is a oneshot service type which we see in the output as well (green marker).
It is expected to see this service as inactive (dead) after initial execution.
Working as expected.
