If anyone is interested, to auto enable cockpit at boot:

sudo systemctl enable cockpit.socket
sudo systemctl start cockpit.socket

At least to me this was not obvious, but you must go to your user context menu in the upper right>Authentication and explicity enable a SSH key to be used to authenticate against other systems. Now I can add my virtual machines without issue.

Please add "packagekit" as an optdepends as of cockpit version 143.

Hello there, any one else with this issue when trying to enable cockpit ?

# systemctl start cockpit.service
# systemctl enable cockpit.service
The unit files have no installation config (WantedBy, RequiredBy, Also, Alias
settings in the [Install] section, and DefaultInstance for template units).
This means they are not meant to be enabled using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:
1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
.wants/ or .requires/ directory.
2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
a requirement dependency on it.
3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).
4) In case of template units, the unit is meant to be enabled with some
instance name specified.

For reference:

# cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/cockpit.service

networkmanager is not a hard dependency. Please make it optional.

Getting the following issue: commented on 2016-02-29 15:27

This requires to install `wayland` as dependency on a headless server. Does anybody know where the wayland dependency comes from?

Can we add --localstatedir=/var to avoid creating /usr/var directory?
