I have a Centos 7 server that won't boot, it's giving me the following errorsenter image description here

I can boot to single user mode but I just get the following when I try to query any of these services with systemctl

systemctl status polkit Unit polkit.service could not be found.

Any ideas what could be causing the boot issues or what the best way to troubleshoot this is?

  • Please add the output of dmesg and cat /var/log/syslog. – Hunter.S.Thompson Aug 9 '17 at 15:12
  • I only have a console session with no networking so I have no way to get that data from the host. I can go looking for anything specific. The issues I'm having trying to use systemctl in single user mode aren't specific to this host, I get the same thing on a working test server if I boot that to single user mode.Iif anyone can explain why that is and how to amend service configuration, i.e. startup and dependencies from single user mode I'd appreciate it. – martin81 Aug 9 '17 at 16:06
