Hi Eli,

Thanks for the response! From my understanding, /etc/sysconfig is intended to contain files which are sourceable by shell scripts. Below is a link to a blog post that does a good job explaining.


To me, /etc/ is the catch all for other system level configuration that isn't part of some daemon. But, I could be wrong on that and would welcome other opinions. I am by no means an expert myself.

Greetings  everyone,

I am working on a patch to move /etc/sysconfig/lnet.conf to /etc/lnet.conf. For those interested in the patch, it can be found at https://review.whamcloud.com/#/c/26971/.

I am no expert on LSB but should it be under plain /etc/ and not say /etc/lustre/ or /etc/lnet/ at least? (where the logical thing to me is /etc/lustre but I understand there are plans to seperate between lustre and lnet)
Also what is bad about /etc/sysconfig/ (other then it being fairly RH specific)?

The patch, even though it is simple, could impact those already using lnetctl & /etc/sysconfig/lnet.conf. So if you are using those to configure lnet, please do let me know. I'm trying to get an idea of how many sites use it before the change gets accepted.
