Re: [HTCondor-users] Log messages for malformed config files?

Condor in general will abort when there is a malformed configuration file.  But validation of configuration *values* depends on which daemon looks at them and when. 

Was this a job router configuration value?

Hi Iain,

there should be no specific log level set for any of the daemons/subsytems, so in principle default.

Restarting the condor services in general threw no error messages, so I assumed that the daemons were all up as expected.
