If your distribution builds in the config file into the initrd, it's not
enough to simply edit the journald.conf on your live system and restart
journald,  you'll also need to rebuild the initrd.

If journald is started in initrd (early boot), it will still see the
config file from the initrd if getting a reload signal.

I am sorry, I don't understand what you are asking.

Of course, journald.conf is read by journald. If that answers your
question.

Lennart -


Thank you for the reply.


It's not clear whether you are instructing me to do something (restart journald 
or rebuild initrd) or asking a question.


Please note that while I have some experience with Linux and the SuSE distro 
(about 11 years or so), this is the first time I am delving into systemd.


I was simply trying to find out where else the value (storage=persistent) is 
registered or cached.


Please clarify.  Thanks.

You have to restart journald of course?

Or maybe rebuild your initrd because the config file is also added to
the initrd on your distro?

[systemd-devel] systemd-journald error

2016-11-25 Thread Joel Miller
Because I had misspelled the word "persistent" as "persisten" (dropping 
the final "t"), I received the following error:


[1.485872] systemd-journald[104]: [/etc/systemd/journald.conf:11] 
Failed to parse storage setting, ignoring: persisten


Despite correcting the .conf file (/etc/systemd/journald.conf in SuSE 
Leap 42.1), the error remains, perhaps because the value is cached 
somewhere in the system, but it is not causing any issues that I can 
detect.  I welcome any suggestions of where to look.


I am aware that I could reload the configuration for journald or the 
entire systemd.  And should neither of those work, I could reinstall 
systemd.


If I should have posted this on a different list, please let me know (I 
do have a thread on an openSuSE forum).


Thanks.
