sshd sometimes does not start on boot on Fedora 30, even though it is enabled. It happens while testing built images and on staging as well. No idea what's going on, there's not even any attempt at starting it, the service is sometimes just ignored.

I was original reporter of this issue in Redmine. Let me add some more details here.

It happened again with #13892 and #13894, here is the reproduction scenario:

  1. Create a new VPS from FC30 template
  2. Deploy a public key
  3. Verify it is possible to login via SSH
  4. Enable Docker and FUSE features
  5. After automatic VPS restart, verify that it is not possible to login
  6. Initiate VPS restart
  7. Verify that it is not possible to login via SSH
  8. Generate a root passoword and login from VPS admin via console
  9. Verify that sshd is not running with command systemctl status sshd
  10. Run systemctl enable sshd and systemctl start sshd
  11. Verify that is is possible to login via SSH
  12. Initiate VPS restart
  13. Verify that is is possible to login via SSH

Yeah it happens regularly on F30. SSHD just doesn't start sometimes and I have no idea why. It is
enabled, but systemd ignores it for some reason. The steps don't matter, every VPS start is like a
lottery ticket.

In two tests, I was able to reproduce that the issue happened only with additional VM features.

I don't think it's connected to any VM features. Just had the same thing happen on Fedora 31. It seems random to me, timing perhaps, still no idea. I've added template for Fedora 31, even though the problem is still there.
