Page describes steps to verify systemd functionality and possible fixes for troublesome parts.
To check if everything works correctly use
systemctl status -a
and look for failed services if any.
Some systems require systemd override files to disable security hardening not supported by our OpenVZ kernel - this includes seccomp filter and memory deny write execute.
These can be disabled for specific service with following override file:
[Service] SystemCallFilter= MemoryDenyWriteExecute=no
File needs to be placed in
To create it manually for e.g. systemd-journald.service use
systemctl edit systemd-journald # paste override code from above systemctl daemon-reload systemctl start systemd-journald
