    @Alexandr,  Any updates on this issue? It's causing outages with new Plesk installations, though the temprorary fix works good for us. Would be good if it's fixed permanently

    Hi @Ansgar Smith,

    In general, this bug is a systemd one - all OSes with systemd are affected.
    Links on the discussions are in the Cause section.

    The bug PPPM-7414 is created in order to track this issue in general.
    As the root cause is on the systemd side, Plesk cannot offer a permanent solution, but we created this workaround so our customers won't suffer from systemd bug.

    I recommend following this article, as we'll update it as soon as systemd bug is fixed.
    The Cause section has been modified in order not to confuse anymore.
