comment What do values taken by 'OnFailureJobMode=' mean in systemd unit files
In my version of systemd (215), systemctl --job-mode gives me systemctl: option '--job-mode' requires an argument, and giving it any argument returns a list of all running units.

comment How to disable a service without using 'systemctl disable'
This would be a service that hasn't been run by systemd yet (it's custom), so there wouldn't be any of those extra symlinks. I am guessing those would be created on first boot?

Didn't get a chance @hastur. I don't have my laptop at the moment to confirm. Give me a until end of next week. Will do another Bounty if the solution works.

comment Can sudo replace su?
Looks like there is no case where su is technically superior?

comment Can sudo replace su?
So, all it would need for sudo to replace su in a sane manner is to update POSIX? No corner cases where sudo would be less suitable?

comment How to check if NTPD updates machine's time successfully using shell?
Rather add this info on the Answer itself. It is valuable enough, and you just might get the vote reversed.

The connection to the VPN server does not need to be that reliable, but the system time needs to be.
