If a user generates an invalid configuration file, sshd will shut down and not come back up when the user issues a reload. [Test Case] $ lxc launch ubuntu:xenial tester $ lxc exec tester bash # echo "blah blah" >>/etc/ssh/sshd_config # systemctl reload sshd Job for ssh.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status ssh.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. # systemctl status ssh.service ● ssh.service - OpenBSD Secure Shell server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/ssh.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2018-08-21 18:15:41 UTC; 19s ago * The service should have checked the config file, failed to reload, but remained active in its current configuration. In this case ssh has shut down. [Regression Potential] This code will only trigger on an invalid configuration file (in which case sshd would not load anyway), so there should be no regressions. [Other Info] autopkgtest [13:45:46]: test regress: -----------------------] autopkgtest [13:45:47]: test regress: - - - - - - - - - - results - - - - - - - - - - regress PASS autopkgtest [13:45:47]: @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ summary regress PASS [Original Description] After adding some lines to /etc/ssh/sshd_config I tried to reload the configuration with the command: ``` sudo systemctl reload sshd ``` No error message was returned. So I assumed that the sshd was running with the current config. But `sudo systemctl status sshd` told me that the service failed due to a wrong option in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Please see the following output: ~~~ :~$ sudo vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config :~$ sudo systemctl reload sshd :~$ sudo systemctl status sshd ● ssh.service - OpenBSD Secure Shell server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/ssh.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Di 2018-05-15 10:00:04 CEST; 8s ago Process: 12089 ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 7536 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/sshd -D $SSHD_OPTS (code=exited, status=255) Main PID: 7536 (code=exited, status=255) ~~~ I would expect that a warning or error message is returned when the service fails while reloading it's configuration. A fix for this behaviour would be appreciated.
