hostnamectl: Failed to activate service

Postby ^rooker » Mon Apr 13, 2020 1:45 pm

Trying to set the hostname using "hostnamectl" (Xubuntu 18.04.1):
Code: Select all
$ hostnamectl set-hostname MY_HOSTNAME

Get the following error:
Could not set property: Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.hostname1': timed out (service_start_timeout=25000ms)

It's weird, because executing the same command again "just worked".
The error message appeared after executing hostnamectl immediately after resuming from suspend mode. Maybe that's related :?

A possibly related Ansible issue?

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
