Re: nm-online -s errors but nnonline doesn't (and networking is up)

Thanks again for looking at this...

The number following "remove_pending_action" indicates how many
remaining pending actions are still there (after removal).

I had wondered if that is what that was.  Is that total pending actions
or pending actions for just that device?

So, the
repeated lines with

  (enp2s0): remove_pending_action (0):

say that in fact nothing is left pending.


I would think, that the log
message about removing 'activation-0x55d746892f60' was rate-limited
journald. If that is the case, you'd see a message in journal about
dropped messages. You can also disable rate-limiting, via the
RateLimitIntervalSec and RateLimitBurst settings, see `man

I don't think there was any rate limiting going on:

Jun 27 15:00:58 systemd-journald[645]: Suppressed 5245 messages from 
Jun 28 09:33:02 systemd-journald[645]: Suppressed 928 messages from 

Those are the last and first messages about supression after and before
the logs provided in the previous message.

Anyway, you post here the content of
  [1530181596.5848] manager: check_if_startup_complete returns FALSE
because of enp2s0
at a time when clearly there were still pending actions:
  [1530181597.9974] device[0x55d7468810e0] (enp2s0):
add_pending_action (2): 'queued-state-change-disconnected'

But even now, hours after the boot has completed and there don't appear
to be any pending actions, "nm-online -s" is still saying offline.

you don't show the log, later, when there are no more pending actions
on enp2s0.
But if rate-limiting of journal hit, then the interesting line likely
is missing too.

Per the above, it does not appear that any rate-limiting hit so this
shouldn't be the case.

I didn't want to bull-doze you earlier with the whole log since it's
biggish.  The whole log for the NetworkManager.service and
NetworkManager-online.service units from boot until about 34 minutes
later can be found at
