The server still works, but my terminal keeps showing: Failed to get properties: Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1': timed out (service_start_timeout=25000ms) and pauses for 25s after each command. In case it's relevant, the <service> i was trying to start had just been symlinked into /etc/systemd/system/: root@pangolin-jiraconf # ls -la /etc/systemd/system/testemail2jira.service lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 82 Jul 16 13:48 /etc/systemd/system/testemail2jira.service -> /opt/atlassian/jira/current/emailprocessing/testemail2jira/testemail2jira@.service File contents: [Unit] Description=Check that email to %i JIRA works [Service] #Type=oneshot # Note: I keep the config file, testemail2jira.json5 and rsa.* files in emailprocessing/, one directory below testemail2jira/, so that they can be version-controlled independently. # If you want testemail2jira.json5 and rsa.* within testemail2jira/, then add testemail2jira/ to WorkingDirectory and remove it from the ExecStart command WorkingDirectory=/opt/atlassian/%i/current/emailprocessing ExecStart=/opt/atlassian/%i/current/emailprocessing/testemail2jira/venv/bin/python testemail2jira/testemail2jira.py User=root [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target Perhaps the problem is that my service file is a template (testemail2jira@.service), but I symlinked it as a regular 'testemail2jira.service'.
