Enable live reconfiguration

Before you begin

All configuration files should be free from warning messages when badmin reconfig is running, and multiple sections in configuration files should be merged where possible. Configuration files should follow the order and syntax that is given in the template files.


  1. Define LSF_LIVE_CONFDIR in lsf.conf using an absolute path.
  2. Run lsadmin reconfig and badmin mbdrestart to apply the new parameter setting.

    Running bconf creates updated copies of changed configuration files in the directory that is specified by LSF_LIVE_CONFDIR.


    When a file exists in the directory set by LSF_LIVE_CONFDIR, all LSF restart and reconfig commands read the file in this directory instead of the equivalent configuration file in LSF_CONFDIR.
