Description Anand Buddhdev 2016-08-17 10:28:57 UTC
Description of problem:

When more than one instance of a system unit exist, systemctl reload does not reload all of them, but only the one started last.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a systemd unit, and a systemd template with an ExecReload option
2. start the main unit and then start one instance from the template
3. try to reload both of them with "systemctl reload myservice\*"

Actual results:

systemd will reload just one services, but twice.

Expected results:

systemd should reload each service once.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Anand Buddhdev 2016-08-18 07:07:52 UTC
Hello. I would like to apologise for this report. There isn't a bug. My unit configuration was incorrect, and both were binding to the same control socket, so the reload command was acting on the wrong daemon.
