LXC Containers – Systemd Takes A Long Time To Start

I’ve got a CentOS7 server (fully patched) and in it I’m running several LXC containers. I’ve noticed that whenever I try to launch a service via `systemctl start ` soon after LXC boot, it will take
~5 minutes before the prompt returns. After that initial delay, starting/stopping/restarting services happens immediately. It might be that this happens because the server is running a large number of (>20)
containers. On next reboot, I’ll see if it has the same problem when I
have just one container.

In the meantime, anyone else seen similar behavior?
