Previously, systemd ignored symbolic links in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ directory. As a consequence, init scripts with symbolic links included in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ could not be started using systemd. With this update, systemd follows symbolic links included in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ to init scripts. Note that the real location of the init script must be on the partition that is mounted in the initial ramdisk (initrd).
This bug has been copied from bug #1285492 and has been proposed
to be backported to 7.2 z-stream (EUS).
Cross-filed case #01566962 because we need this fix soon.
When will the bug fix package be released publically?
