Description Corinna Vinschen 2014-07-15 15:04:00 UTC
Description of problem: dovecot starts before network initialization is complete

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
dovecot-2.2.13-1.fc20.x86_64

How reproducible: Configure dovecot to listen on explicit static interface address.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot system

Actual results: dovecot generates an error indicating its interface does not exist.

Expected results: dovecot starts

Additional info: This is a generic problem with all services binding to explicit interface addresses and depending on network.target only.  network.target does not make sure that all statically configured interfaces are up.  Onle network-online.target does that.  Therefore the solution for all configurable services not supporting IP_FREEBIND is to change the dependency
from network.target to a depedency on network-online.target:

  Requires=network-online.target
  After=network-online.target

Other network services are affected as well so this bug  report is only one in a row.
