[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#911676: .service file needs to define Wants=network-online.target in addition of After=network-online.target

Package: icinga2
Version: 2.10.1-1
Severity: normal


If you really want to have icinga started after the network connection
is active, you also need to set Wants=network-online.target in addition
of After=network-online.target

See (in systemd.special(7)):
           Units that strictly require a configured network connection should pull in network-online.target (via a Wants= type dependency) and order themselves after it. This target unit is intended to
           pull in a service that delays further execution until the network is sufficiently set up. What precisely this requires is left to the implementation of the network managing service.

Kind regards,

Laurent Bigonville
