	I'm not sure exactly what you did, but here the only netctl-related
"files" I have in /etc/systemd are in multi-user.target.wants and
are symlinks to /usr/lib/systemd/system/netctl-ifplugd at .service

	In your case if the file is directly in /etc/systemd/system then it
should probably be removed unless you have copied one of the
/usr/lib/systemd/system/netctl*@.service files and made
modifications to it in which case, you might want to look here for
info on how to override systemd unit settings:

	If your file is in one of the *.target.wants folders then it should
definitely be a symlink.
