The install of the rpm enables it. The message is telling you that it is already enabled.

I installed the Terabithia xymon-client (version 4.3.28) rpm onto a test server
(running CentOS 7). No problems with that, or running it. However, as we
usually do, once a service has been installed we enable it to start at boot
time using 'systemctl'. This gave an error:

# systemctl enable xymon-client
Failed to execute operation: Too many levels of symbolic links

As far as I can tell the xymon-client package is installed 'enabled' by
default, but even so re-enabling it should not give an error.
