Yes, I understand all that, but "weird" things happen when services start automatically at startup. What I am suspecting is that the OS does attempt to start the service, but it is crashing for some reason. I imagine there is an OS log file somewhere that might give some clues on the issue, but I would not know offhand. And even if I knew where that log was on Ubuntu , such knowledge might not help you on CentOS. So the best alternative is to have the script "echo" so info.

If you are using one of the jboss_init_*.sh scripts, then you will see this:

  | . . .
  | eval $JBOSS_CMD_START >${JBOSS_CONSOLE} 2>&1 &

in which case all you have to do is change the /dev/null to something a little more permanent ;-) Or set JBOSS_CONSOLE earlier script - there are some 'if' statements earlier in the script that ensure the files is accessible, so set it before those statements. And of course test manually first.
