Summary0000491: bareos-dir dies on reload if config has typos
DescriptionIf the configuration isn't 100% correct, the director dies after doing a reload, terminating all running jobs on its way. This really makes no sense, since the director already has a test mode to parse the configuration and check for errors. The director should use this test on reload and check its configuration prior to initiating the full reload
Steps To ReproduceGarble the configuration a bit
Run bconsole and then reload

Sorry, mate, but this isn't a minor. If you have a large backup server and it dies during a bunch of backups and wastes a ton of tape space, that's actually a major.

cleanup reload_config command

reload config command is callable as signal handler for SIGHUP
and by the bconsole reload command.

Make sure, that the SIGHUP handler is only called once.

Do not terminate the director in case of config errors.
