sshd is not started on transition from single to multi user

Bug #747756 reported by Clint Byrum on 2011-04-01
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openssh (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The start and stop conditions of ssh server make it so ssh is stopped when a user runs

telinit 1

but not re-started when the system is booted back into runlevel 2.

The fix is to change

start on filesystem


start on filesystem or runlevel [2345]

This will still start ssh earlier than other services during boot, but will also start it on transitions into runlevel 2.

  * Start on runlevel [2345] so that switching back to runlevel 2
    from single user mode starts ssh again. (LP: #747756)
