[CentOS] centos 7- boot doesn't wait for startup script to complete

thank you for the feedback.  I tried using Before=systemd-user-sessions.service.  At first glance it seems to work, but then the oracle DB shuts down.  Note that myservices starts oracle and then does a few things for our application.
When I remove that entry, it goes right to the login as I originally described, but the oracle DB does not shut down.  maybe I have the wrong combination of timeout options with this other option or something, although the timeouts seemed to work also.
Just thought I'd throw it out there.  In either case, thanks for helping.
I looked online for an explanation of the options for these files, other that the systemd manual page which is hard to use.  I really couldn't find one.  Any suggestions?
Thanks again.KM

Reformatting so it is readable.

What you probably want to do is to add something to the [Unit] section
to make the completion of the be a requirement for the user login
service.  Something like:


You will most likely also need to add a TimeoutStartSec= to your
[Service] section to give it a longer time to run before systemd times
out the service start.
