I created a bunch of upstart jobs for my services that I'm running on an Ubuntu 12.04. I can successfully start them and stop with with:

service my_service start
service my_service stop

but they are not listed when I do

service --status-all

Any ideas what I might be missing?

To created the services I just added .conf files in /etc/init.


service --status-all only shows the services started using a script in /etc/init.d/. To list upstart jobs, do initctl list.

    Thanks. I find it terrible odd that service blah start would start blah, and service --status-all wouldn't show its status. Oh well. – Pablo Jun 24 '13 at 17:13
