How to pass options to service started with systemd?


Hello,

Ok, so Im starting to get the hang of systemd and so on on RHEL7. But I have one quick question:

If I'm for example starting the NTP-server Chrony using the command
Code:
systemctl start chronyd.service
...and I want to create only ipv4 sockets using the -4 option to /usr/sbin/chronyd. How do I accomplish that with systemctl?

If I look in the .service-file under ExecStart it says the path followed by the variable $OPTIONS. Where are the options defined?

Thanx in advance!
/P

chrony probably has a config file that you should use instead.

Ok. Now I just used chrony as an example but is that the general answer as well?
You don't do it the way I thought, you use config files?

Regards,

Code:
man systemd.exec
EnvironmentFile might be of interest.
