Splunk service on search heads going inactive after rolling restart

I made a splunk.service file inside /etc/systemd/system so I could manage splunk like a service.
Here is what i wrote inside it:
`[Unit]
Description=Splunk

[Service]
Type=forking
ExecStart=/opt/splunk/bin/splunk start
ExecStop=/opt/splunk/bin/splunk stop
Restart=on-failure`

After I made the service, every time I did a rolling restart on the search heads the service became inactive in all of them.
Is the Restart=on-failure interfering with the restart? what can I do to fix it?

Thanks.

The problem was indeed with Restart=on-failure it should be Restart=always and then it works like a charm!
