The rationale probably is that if you create unit file > you can just as well create symlink to this unit file. Also "systemctl I think "Generated iotwatch.target cannot have a state" would be a much improved error message then. So again there's nothing wrong with the unit file? > dameon-reload" removes and re-creates all generated units, so any > symlink to such unit outside of generated subdirectories potentially > becomes invalid. I think all the symlink stuff should be an implementation detail that shouldn't be part of the user interface; instead there should be some higher-level commands to maipulate these. > > Documentation could be better indeed. Finally: If a generated unit cannot be enabled or disabled, isn't the "vendor-preset: disabled" the wrong choice: I specified nothing, and the logic should be: If a generator created a unit it should be enabled; otherwise sich a unit shouldn't be enabled. I couldn't find the relevant manual page that discusses this topic...
