[RFE] Introduce --verbose option for systemctl start/stop to print transaction information
Last modified: 2016-10-18 07:31:11 EDT
Description of problem:
systemctl start NAME does not show success
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl start NAME
users cannot see easily that service/unit starts successfully
[ OK ] can be at the output
Just to clarify things here a little bit. If something goes wrong and the daemon's behavior is sane (for example don't use type=simple for daemon which requires configuration and can't run without it), we will print the error message. It would be nice to have some more verbose output, but that is something for 7.1.

So far there was no progress upstream. But this bug is definitely on our radar for RHEL-7.3.

Now that RHEL7.2 has been released what's the status of this? Will we get to it in RHEL7.2.z and/or RHEL7.3?
Michal was working on that patch, but it seems to be pretty complicated. We can't make it to rhel-7.3.
From my point of view I am not even sure that this is something we want in to change in rhel7 at all.

I discussed this with the customer recently. This is a feature that would be nice to have, but it's not a show-stopper by any means. Is this something that will eventually make it into systemd, or is it best that we decline this bugzilla and close WONTFIX due to higher priority systemd bugzillas? After all, this bugzilla has been open since 2013 with no firm commitment to being addressed soon. :-)
This is something we definitely want in systemd, but it will not happen any time soon. Maybe it would be better to not promise anything, close this as won't fix and then suprise our customers in the distant future.
Not in scope for RHEL. If you insist on implementing such feature, please file an upstream request and reopen this bug with a link to it.
