  • If you encounter a problem with Wicked, and want to take a stab at debugging it, enabling debug output and restarting the service as follows, should be your first step to help diagnose the problem:
 # enable debugging, applied to wickedd*.service as well as to wicked.service aka network.service
 sed -e 's/^WICKED_DEBUG=.*/WICKED_DEBUG=all/g' -i /etc/sysconfig/network/config
 # restart the daemons to apply the debug config in the daemons (wickedd* services) 
 systemctl restart wickedd
 # use "--debug all" for direct wicked calls
 wicked --debug all ifup all
  • If the client logs do not point you at a possible error, you may examine the service logs yourself with `journalctl`:
 journalctl -b -o short-precise > journal.log
 # an initial grep for "wicked" is a place to start 
  • Of course not all problems are easily diagnosed, so to file a bug, please go to: file a wicked bug
