We use it to autostart nspawn containers at system boot, after the system project disabled the systemctl enable option for nspawn container. 

(Re-)activation of rc.local
————  edit  ------
[…]# vim /etc/rc.d/rc.local    # create and edit file

systemctl start systemd-nspawn@CONTAINER_NAME

[[  <esc> wq ]]

[…]# chmod ug+x /etc/rc.d/rc.local      # adjust permissions of created file

[…]# #### Just in case you depend on a specific network service ####
[…]# mkdir /etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d/
[…]# vim /etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d/network.conf  
# /etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d/network.conf

[[  <esc> wq ]]

[…]# /usr/lib/systemd/system-generators/systemd-rc-local-generator  # execute

Each time you modify /etc/rc.d/rc.local you must rerun systemd-rc-local-generator!

Issue with F 36/37: When called, the message: "This program takes one or three arguments." is displayed. The parameter "-h" causes the output of an error message, e.g. that rc.local is not executable.

A "man systemd-rc-local-generator" does not mention anything about required parameters, a "systemd-rc-local-generator --help" gives a lot of options and shows "file ..." as a parameter, but no explanation of which files.

It works nevertheless.
