Fedora {{Template:DocsDict/BeatsVer}} features the Upstart initialization system.  All System V init scripts should run fine in compatibility mode. However, users who have made customizations to their <code>/etc/inittab</code> file will need to port those modifications to upstart. For information on how upstart works, see the <code>init(8)</code> and <code>initctl(8)</code> man pages. For information on writing upstart scripts, see the <code>events(5)</code> man page, and also the Upstart Getting Started Guide:

Fedora {{Template:DocsDict/BeatsVer}} features NetworkManager.

Detailed information on the storaged project is available from the upstream site at https://storaged.org .
 
 
* NetworkManager does not currently support all virtual device types. Users who use bridging, bonding, or VLANs may need to switch to the old <code>network</code> service after configuration of those interfaces.
 
  
* NetworkManager starts the network asynchronously.  Users who have applications that require the network to be fully initialized during boot should set the <code>NETWORKWAIT</code> variable in <code>/etc/sysconfig/network</code>. Please [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora file bugs]  about cases where this is necessary, so we can fix the applications in question.

* In the <code>vcl</code> declaration of backends, <code>set backend</code> has been simplified to <code>backend</code>, and backend parts are now just prefixed with a dot, so the default localhost configuration looks like this:

storaged replaces udisks2

The udisks2 package provides dynamic storage management functionality to legacy Fedora systems. Most prominently, desktop environments like GNOME udisks to handle removable media, such as USB thumb drives, via a dbus interface.

Because udisks2 does not support more complex storage technologies such as LVM or iSCSI, it is being replaced in Fedora 25 by storaged, an enhanced fork of the udisks project. storaged is a drop-in replacement for udisks2, and the additional functionality allows administrators to use software like Cockpit in Fedora Server to manage these advanced storage resources.

Detailed information on the storaged project is available from the upstream site at https://storaged.org .
