SUSE Enterprise Storage 6
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP 1


The following messages are logged to "/var/log/messages"  and / or can be seen when looking at the journalctl output for the ceph-mon*, ceph-mgr* and ceph-osd* services:
systemd[1]: /usr/lib/systemd/system/ceph-mgr@.service:15: Unknown lvalue 'LockPersonality' in section 'Service'
systemd[1]: /usr/lib/systemd/system/ceph-osd@.service:16: Unknown lvalue 'LockPersonality' in section 'Service'


The messages are cosmetic and can be ignored.


In SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1 systemd doesn't recognize the lvalue (directive) in the unit file. Unrecognized directives in unit files are however simply ignored.
