Systemd And Network Startup/shutdown ?

I’ve just started to dip my toe in the water with CentOS 7 – and have started looking at porting custom CentOS 6 init.d/xinetd/whatever scripts and configs to systemd, but notice that CentOS 7 appears to use
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network as the method for starting/stopping the network

Is this correct – or am I missing something?

One thought on - Systemd And Network Startup/shutdown ?

  • You are correct, the old sysv init script still exists, although you are still using systemd to launch it.

    I’m not sure why it exists but I seem to recall there was something that required it. (load balancer maybe?)

    The NetworkManager service does use systemd units though.
