Re: [HTCondor-users] config.d vs condor_config.local

as I said LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE is read after the config dir if the value of LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE has changed. 

If you will just run the command I asked and show the results, then I can probably explain what is happening.

this is what I see on a node just updated to 8.2.2:

If add "myFOO = FALSE" to the rpm-installed
/etc/condor/condor_config.local and put "COLLECTOR_NAME = BioMagResBank,
UW-Madison" in /etc/condor/config.d/10_pool.conf

# condor_config_val -dump | grep -E '(COLLECTOR_NAME|myFOO)'

If I now add "LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE = /dev/null" to
/etc/condor/config.d/10_pool.conf, do a full restart (not a _reconfig)

# condor_config_val -dump | grep -E '(COLLECTOR_NAME|myFOO)'
COLLECTOR_NAME = BioMagResBank, UW-Madison

So if it's read before and after, why is myFOO gone?
