Upon login to serial console I run a command via /etc/profile
netctl start wlan0-ROUTENZUG
However it fails, yielding this output

Job for netctl@wlan0\x2ROUTENZUG.service failed. See ´sytemctl status netctl@wlan0\x2ROUTENZUG.service´ and ´journalctl -xn for details.´

The latter contains nothing about that job, the first just tells me the job is dead.
I just tested: The command fails as well when given manually.


Nevermind, figured it out:
Problem was, I already had brought the respective interface up
ifconfig wlan0 up
which prevents the job from working.
Info was obtained by running
netctl status wlan0-ROUTENZUG
