Comment 2 Kevin Howell 2017-03-30 15:02:46 UTC
Eko, can you please attach the config files used?
Please tell us which values in the config you believe should cause an error?
What error message/feedback do you expect?

Comment 4 Kevin Howell 2017-04-03 19:26:10 UTC
We are thinking that we would like to handle this as an RFE which does something like this: a virt-who subcommand that validates the config, reports any problems (including ignored keys), and validates connections with candlepin and virtualization backends.
