Well, I don't think those two cases are the same and as such should be treated equally by systemd. I see typoing the template name more like adding a typo to ExecStart=/sbin/foobard /etc/typo_in_file_name In this case foobard would most likely fail to start and systemd would mark the service as failed. This is more comparable to your case, because the template name is passed as a config option to the service -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
