howto - migrate systemV to systemd - adapting grub2

Since i'm on it to migrate my fifth machine from systemV to systemd (with an delay of over one week per machine) and i've searched now the third time a the solution for the following step, i want to provide my results here.

I am using the archlinux migration howto (german) and i always struggle with the part "add >>init=/bin/systemd<< to the kernel line of your boot loader".

The debian wiki provides a description for this task when you are using grub2.

# $EDITOR /etc/default/grub GRUBCMDLINELINUX_DEFAULT="quiet init=/lib/systemd/systemd" <--- Change this line

update-grub

or (for arch linux)

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
