5.2.3. Systemd

Some newer distributions have replaced the old "SysV" style of initialization daemons and scripts with an alternative called Systemd.
Pacemaker is able to manage these services if they are present.
Instead of init scripts, systemd has unit files. Generally, the services (unit files) are provided by the OS distribution, but there are online guides for converting from init scripts. [12]


Remember to make sure the computer is not configured to start any services at boot time — that should be controlled by the cluster.
