      After upgrade to 2.319.1 (from 2.277.2), the command "service jenkins start" on the Linux console hangs (we waited for ~30 mins). It doesnt return back to shell. This currently prevents the ansible playbook from progressing since it gets stuck at this task waiting for a return to shell.

      previously, the 'service jenkins start' command should used to return to shell with 5 seconds.


      service jenkins start

      [ABC@ip-ABC]# service jenkins start
      Starting Jenkins
      Session terminated, killing shell... ...killed.
      [ABC@ ~]#

      Debugging the init.d script for jenkins, the daemon command which used to return back to the shell, doesnt do that anymore.

      echo -n "Starting Jenkins "
              daemon --user "$JENKINS_USER" --pidfile "$JENKINS_PID_FILE" "$JAVA_CMD" $PARAMS > /dev/null

      Values of the variables:

      JENKINS_USER = jenkins

      JENKINS_PID_FILE = /var/run/jenkins.pid

      JAVA_CMD = /etc/alternatives/java

      PARAMS =  -Xmx3883m -Xms3883m -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=8010 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false -Dhudson.model.DirectoryBrowserSupport.CSP="default-src 'self'; connect-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline' storybook.js.org; script-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline' 'unsafe-eval'; style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'; font-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline';" -DJENKINS_HOME=/var/lib/jenkins -jar /usr/lib/jenkins/jenkins.war and --logfile=/var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log --webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war --daemon --httpPort=8080 --debug=5 --handlerCountMax=100 --handlerCountMaxIdle=20


      We see that while the service start command is stuck, it is able to start Jenkins successfully. 

      We confirmed:

      1. Jenkins process (ps output) is up.
      2. /var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log has "Jenkins is fully up and running"
