Hi Eric,

thanks, for the file. The cause of the problem that you are
seeing appears to to be the absence of set_defaults() which
in newer versions of ldirectord is called in read_config() as
part of re-reading the configuration. The result is that while
you can change global options, you can't remove them.

With this in mind, I have a suggestion which is to change emailalert
to an address that goes nowhere rather than comment it out:


Please read the documentation before posting - it's available at: mailing list - lvs-users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Send requests to lvs-users-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
