chrony service does not start
Last modified: 2012-09-18 16:02:47 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ntp package
2. Try to start ntpd service
Commands fails due to missing target file
Command does not fail
