Type: global configuration parameter

Default: on


This option modifies behaviour of dynaFile creation. If different owners or groups are specified for new files or directories and rsyslogd fails to set these new owners or groups, it will log an error and NOT write to the file in question if that option is set to “on”. If it is set to “off”, the error will be ignored and processing continues. Keep in mind, that the files in this case may be (in)accessible by people who should not have permission. The default is “on”.
