Right. Thanks for the tips. I am aware of needing logs, just didn’t know how to call them, or what to post since there were not errors after running them at all. Also since I’m new to systemd in general, I didn’t know where the .services were housed.
I first ran systemctl start sshd.service last night, then toggled with rcstart. Running **rcstart sshd **did work, again with no output. I didn’t know how to check behind the scenes messaging and assumed nothing was happening because no errors were being thrown despite sshd not running with systemctl
Checking journalctl right now - it had a lot of stuff in between, and I didn’t want to sift through a couple hours of logs.
Just now, restarting the service by running **systemctl restart sshd.service **did work, checking journalctl showed it as well.
I also didn’t know where the services folder was, so I couldn’t check for the existance of sshd.service.
By running systemctl **status sshd.service **I saw which folder services are found in, which was another question I had that answered itself.
Coming from another distro that is openrc based, opensuse’s implementation of systemd services, diagnostic tools, and error messages are posted differently are throwing me for a loop. aka: learning curve
Thanks. I’m learning the intricacies. **systemctl start/stop sshd.service **is now running correctly. Heck, for all I know it was correctly running last night, and since it was starting off for the first time was generating the RSA and other keys for the system and wasn’t ready when I tried to connect.
Knowing journalctl -l now, I’ll post in the next issue I may have.

It would be “rcsshd start” or “systemctl status sshd.service”.
Why do you have to use one or the other? You do not say what fails.
