    Instead of moving the symlink, it would be better to just "systemctl unmask fail2ban.service". Also, it's not necessary to reinstall fail2ban, simply start it with "service fail2ban start".

    Hello @Lars Doe!

    Thank you for the infromation. The article has been updated.
    Command "service fail2ban start" wasn't added to the article since the article desctribed an issue related to the service installation.
