Description Michael Ekstrand 2011-08-24 02:37:09 UTC
Description of problem:
When systemctl is asked to operate on a nonexistent unit (e.g. start/stop it), it silently does nothing.  No feedback is provided to the user that the unit does not exist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-26-8.fc15.i686

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl stop libvertd.service (or any other nonexistent service)
  
Actual results:
Nothing and a 0 exit code

Expected results:
# systemctl stop libvertd.service
libvertd.service: unit not found
<nonzero exit code>

Bonus points for:
# systemctl stop libvertd.service
libvertd.service: unit not found
    Perhaps you meant: libvirtd.service
<nonzero exit code>

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 3 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2012-02-20 11:30:24 UTC
Given that we will be only back porting important fixes for F15 at this point in time I'm moving this RFE against Rawhide so it does not get forgotten or lost in the EOL process.
