Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1002295
ypbind should not depend on NetworkManager-wait-online
Last modified: 2013-08-30 06:34:12 EDT
Description of problem:
ypbind currently depends on NetworkManager-wait-online. This causes a dependency failed warning from systemd during boot when using the plain network service instead of NetworkManager.
ypbind should only depend on network.target in F20. I am told that network.target will now wait for NetworkManager-wait-online if NetworkManager is enabled.
See bug 921774
Thanks for reporting, I will fix it.
Actually it turned to be not so clear what caused the problem. See my comment in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=921774#c3
Not that I'd have problem with removing After=NetworkManager-wait-online.service from the unit file, since it shouldn't be needed, but I'd rather find out the real cause of the problem first.
copying from the other bug:
I got it wrong before; you should replace NetworkManager-wait-online.service with network-online.target. That's the new abstracted target (in systemd >= 200), which is equivalent to NetworkManager-wait-online target when NM is active, but might make use of some other service in spins/distros that don't use NM.

Yeah, I don't know the details of systemd dependencies and error messages. It's possible you shouldn't *need* to remove it, but you definitely can remove it.
Thanks for making it clear. From what I understand from systemd.special(7) network-online.target is part of systemd and *don't have to be enabled* at all (if not required by other services).
On the other hand, NetworkManager-wait-online.service is part of NetworkManager and can be enabled even if network-online.target is not. Because of this reason I'd like to include both in After=, which should ensure proper ordering in case any of them is enabled.
