This is documented in https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/systemd.generator.html | Generators are run very early at boot and cannot rely on any external | services. They may not talk to any other process. That includes simple | things such as logging to syslog(3), or systemd itself (this means: no | systemctl(1))! Non-essential file systems like /var and /home are | mounted after generators have run. Generators can however rely on the | most basic kernel functionality to be available, including a mounted | /sys, /proc, /dev, /usr. So, no network either. I think in praxis you'll find 127.0.0.1 and ::1 to be available. Bastian -- Mind your own business, Spock. I'm sick of your halfbreed interference.
