A service unit that is empty (0 bytes) will be parsed by systemd as masked. While systemctl mask <unit> works by symlinking the service to /dev/null, systemd appears to just check if a file is 0 bytes when read to determine if a unit is masked. This results in the misleading message about a masked service.
Its primary purpose is for ordering things properly at shutdown: since the shutdown ordering of units in systemd is the reverse of the startup ordering, any unit that is order After=network.target can be sure that it is stopped before the network is shut down if the system is powered off.
Failed to start samba.service: Unit samba.service is masked. In addition, when I run systemctl, it shows smbd.service in red showing failed. At the same time restart began to fail, I have lost the share ability in folders created and cannot access. Any help would be appreciated!!!
Well, finally I fixed it. Everything you have to do is to load a different storage-driver in my case I will use overlay:. Disable Docker service: sudo systemctl stop docker.service; Start Docker Daemon (overlay driver): sudo docker daemon -s overlay; Run Demo container: sudo docker run hello-world; In order to make these changes permanent, you must edit /etc/default/docker file and add the option:
Due to the `Restart=always` option, systemd will restart our service in case it crashed. But it will not automatically start the service when the machine reboots. To enable automatic startup, use the following command: sudo systemctl enable AspNetSite If everything is working correctly, we should be able to curl the application via localhost:5000:

# systemctl enable unit. Enable a unit to start automatically at boot and start it immediately: # systemctl enable --now unit. Disable a unit to no longer start at boot: # systemctl disable unit Masking.

Masked units will provide output using the start command if we attempt to launch it. systemctl start servicename.service Failed to start servicename.service: Unit is masked. Unmasking a unit is simple and will return the unit to the state where it can be started or enabled. systemctl unmask servicename.service
