systemctl fails installing a multi-instance service
Last modified: 2012-07-09 03:52:01 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to enable a system service, for instance 'openvpn', on boot, openvpn fails to do so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
+PAM +LIBWRAP +AUDIT +SELINUX +IMA +SYSVINIT +LIBCRYPTSETU
Try to enable a multi intace service, for instance openVPN.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl enable email@example.com
Message "Failed to issue method call: No such file or directory"
with a return code of 1
An empty output with return code of 0.
You can enable such services using the workaround
1. ln -s /lib/systemd/system/openvpn\@.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/openvpn\@myconfig.service
Sorry, I made a mistake in the description. It should mean:
When trying to enable a system service, for instance 'openvpn', on boot, _systemctl_ fails to do so
