I've installed monerod on remote ubuntu machine, but can't start as daemon. systemd service keeps failing.

tried to run with --detach with no luck.

systemd[1]: Starting Monero Full Node...

systemd[1]: monerod.service: Control process exited, code=exited status=203

systemd[1]: Failed to start Monero Full Node.

systemd[1]: monerod.service: Unit entered failed state.

systemd[1]: monerod.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

can anybody share experience with running monerod as systemd service?

    Did you use the monerod.service file which comes with monero (utils/systemd/monerod.service) ? If not, you probably need "GuessMainPID=no"
