Thanks for replying. I followed the wiki but, the kernel variables are 
not set at startup even though the systemd unit is active (checked by 
"systemctl status systemd-sysctl.service"). If I restart the service 
using "systemctl restart systemd-sysctl.service", the kernel variables 
are set. I cannot find any error messages in journalctl or systemctl status.
