E missing-systemd-service-for-init.d-rcS-script

All reports of missing-systemd-service-for-init.d-rcS-script for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The rcS init.d script has no systemd equivalent.

Systemd has a SysV init.d script compatibility mode. It provides access to each SysV init.d script as long as there is no native service file with the same name (e.g. /lib/systemd/system/rsyslog.service corresponds to /etc/init.d/rsyslog).

Services in rcS.d are particularly problematic, because they often cause dependency loops, as they are ordered very early in the boot sequence.

Refer to for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: certain
