After using yum -y erase drbd-heartbeat-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-bash-completion-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-utils-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-kernel-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-udev-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-pacemaker-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 drbd-xen-8.4.2-2.fc18.x86_64 running systemctl reports

$ systemctl status drbd.service
     Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
     Active: failed (Result: timeout) since Sun 2013-06-09 12:18:16 EDT; 1h 6min ago

Running sudo systemctl daemon-reload does not help. Update: running $ sudo systemctl daemon-reexec does not help.

What can I do to tell systemd not to expect drbd.service other than reboot?

I'm not sure if I follow you. You uninstalled all drdb stuff and consequently the service is not running... that seems fine to me, what do you expect?

Back in the good old days of chkconfig --del I never saw error messages from chkconfig --list after a service was deleted. Now I get $ systemctl --full | grep drbd.service outputting drbd.service ... error failed failed drbd.service

But the error is because you have uninstalled drbd!! That is what I'm trying to explain to you, or I missed something?

Read the original post above, especially the bottom line. That is the question. How have you answered it? You have not provided any procedures that would answer "how".

You can use "systemctl reset-failed" to allow systemd to gc failed unreferenced units.
