Since updating to RHEL 7.6, users need 25 seconds to login and messages such as the one shown below are seen in the journal:
[...] dbus[xxx]: [system] Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1': timed out [...] systemd-logind[xxx]: Failed to enable subscription: Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1': timed out [...] systemd-logind[xxx]: Failed to fully start up daemon: Connection timed out [...] systemd: systemd-logind.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE [...] systemd: Failed to start Login Service.
RHEL 7.6 periodically doesn't boot properly because polkit.service and tuned.service fail to start. This happens about 1 in 10 to 20 boots.
