I noticed on my some servers shorewall service is installed but it’s not running.I want to uninstall it.
I executed the command
sudo systemctl status shorewall to check status of shorewall and got the below output.
shorewall.service - Shorewall IPv4 firewall Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/shorewall.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead)
Then I executed
sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove shorewall command to uninstall the shorewall. After uninstalling it, I checked the status of shorewall with this command again
sudo systemctl status shorewall then It’ giving output like below.
shorewall.service Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory) Active: inactive (dead) Jul 08 20:24:23 ip-10-10-10-10 systemd: Stopped Shorewall IPv4 firewall.
Can anyone confirm please that is shorewall uninstalled successfully?, why is it giving the output like this?
The output of
systemctl status shorewall indicates that you successfully removed it from your computer. However, the log entries remain from when it was previously installed. The log entries are not deleted.
