Description Frank Crawford 2012-01-21 07:43:05 UTC
Description of problem:
httpd start before named and fails if there are any DNS entries requiring resolution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system
2. View /var/log/boot.log
Actual results:
httpd starts before named and fails due to unresolved hostnames.

Expected results:
named starts first and all hostnames are resolved.

Additional info:
The SysV/LSB file includes a dependency on named, but systemd entry does not.

Comment 1 Jan Kaluža 2012-01-23 09:22:09 UTC
I'm not sure if it's possible to fix it currently, because bind doesn't have systemd unit file yet (see Bug 719419). I will try to find out if it's possible to start named (which still uses LSB init script) before httpd which uses systemd.

Comment 2 Frank Crawford 2012-01-23 10:33:34 UTC
Are you sure that you can't refer to SysV init scripts as well?  the systemd.service(5) man page says that if a service is requested it will dynamically create a service unit for the script.

Also, if all else fails there is a "SysVStartPriority" option for service units, which is a "temporary compatibility option".

Note that I haven't tried either of these options.

Comment 3 Jan Kaluža 2012-01-23 12:03:27 UTC
Right, I've found out it should be possible to just use this:

After: nss-lookup.target

And I've already committed it to rawhide.

Comment 4 Frank Crawford 2012-01-23 12:08:47 UTC
I'll try it out as soon as it is available.
