Since Red Hat 8 uses SystemD, the best way to delay HAAst start is with a service timer. Create the file haast.timer in the /etc/systemd/system directory with the following contents

[Unit]
Description=Delay HAAst start by 1 minute on bootup

[Timer]
OnBootSec=1min
Unit=haast.service

[Install]
WantedBy=basic.target

Then, enable the HAAst timer and disable the service:

systemctl enable haast.timer
systemctl disable haast.service

And finally, in your haast.service file change the WantedBy line to read:

[Install]
WantedBy=haast.timer

Next inform systemd of your changes:

systemctl daemon-reload

And your HAAst start will delay by 1 minute on bootup. You can adjust the delay as you need.
