CentOS 7 failed to boot properly after update.

Post by cvh » 2018/05/17 07:12:54

Today I encountered problems with different CentOS 7 virtual machines after updating to 7.5.1804. SElinux is disabled on all our systems.
During startup I see messages like:
systemd: Failed to get properties, connection timed out
systemd: Failed to start Login Service
This appears to be a dependency for the Network Manager and doesn't want to start as a result.

After logging in by console I could simulate the problem:
systemctl start systemd-logind
Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Could not connect: Connection refused (g-io-error-quark, 39)
The systemctl command is very slow, even getting the status from this process is not working:
systemctl status systemd-logind.service
Failed to get properties: Connection timed out.

My first question is: Does anyone else have this problem? I encountered this is on different systems in my network, I now blocked all CentOS 7 updates.

Kind regards!

No, no observation.

However, on first system that I did check, the systemd-logind has established socket connections (i.e. not network connections) to systemd-journal and dbus-daemon processes.

Websearch with your error message finds things like: https://mellowhost.com/billing/index.ph ... rk-39.html

I would therefore look at the DBus first.
