I have created a custom '50-mypreset.preset' file in /usr/lib/systemd/system-preset/ along with other system default presets. I try to enforce it issuing 'systemctl preset 50-mypreset.preset' but it says: Failed to preset unit: No such file or directory

if I enter 'systemctl preset /usr/lib/systemd/system-preset/50-mypreset.preset' it says: Failed to preset unit: Invalid argument

my 50-mypreset.preset contains only: disable lvm2-monitor.service

After reboot, it doesn't load the preset since the service is enabled. I have moved it to /etc/systemd/system-preset/ to no avail either. According to docs and other presets it should load with preference according to priority number.

What should I do to enforce my service preset?

If only contains "disable lvm2-monitor.service" Why do not uses systemctl disable lvm2-monitor.service. When systems reboot does not load this service.

it's an single line file example, I intend to disable a list of services with a preset file. My fedora 25 loads this service by default and I can disable it fine with systemctl, but not with the preset.
