[HTCondor-users] Using cron job to manipulate START expression


I am attempting to use a startd cron job to manipulate the START expression. The machine ClassAd is updated and sent to the Collector as expected (as shown by the condor_status command). However, the START value in the setting of the startd daemon remains unchanged (as shown by the condor_config_val command). 

This leads to the odd behavior that setting START = False through the cron job works as expected, but setting START = True through the cron job if it is set to false in the configuration does not work.

Is there setting having the START value updated in the startd configuration as well?
