NAME
       systemd-rc-local-generator - Compatibility generator for starting
       /etc/rc.local and /usr/sbin/halt.local during boot and shutdown

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/systemd/system-generators/systemd-rc-local-generator

DESCRIPTION
       systemd-rc-local-generator is a generator that checks whether
       /etc/rc.local exists and is executable, and if it is pulls the
       rc-local.service unit into the boot process. This unit is responsible
       for running this script during late boot. Note that the script will be
       run with slightly different semantics than the original System V
       version, which was run "last" in the boot process, which is a concept
       that does not translate to systemd. The script is run after
       network.target, but in parallel with most other regular system
       services.

       systemd-rc-local-generator also checks whether /usr/sbin/halt.local
       exists and is executable, and if it is pulls the halt-local.service
       unit into the shutdown process. This unit is responsible for running
       this script during later shutdown.

       Support for both /etc/rc.local and /usr/sbin/halt.local is provided for
       compatibility with specific System V systems only. However, it is
       strongly recommended to avoid making use of these scripts today, and
       instead provide proper unit files with appropriate dependencies for any
       scripts to run during the boot or shutdown processes.

       systemd-rc-local-generator implements systemd.generator(7).
