Description Martin Kosek 2012-08-07 07:53:13 EDT
chrony has the same issue as ntpd:

# service chrony start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start  chrony.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit chrony.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status chrony.service' for details.

# rpm -q chrony

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #846077 +++

Description of problem:
ntpd service always fails to start:

# systemctl start ntpd.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit systemd-timedated-ntp.target failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status systemd-timedated-ntp.target' for details.

It seems that the systemd-timedated-ntp.target file is missing:
# ls /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-timedated-ntp.target
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-timedated-ntp.target: No such file or directory

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ntp package
2. Try to start ntpd service
Actual results:
Commands fails due to missing target file

Expected results:
Command does not fail

          from /usr/lib/systemd/ntp-units.d/*.list,
          systemd-timedated-ntp.target has been removed.
