On a Ceph cluster with iSCSI gateway we have an issue with gateway configuration changes being applied partially. The result is a broken gateway.conf, which goes unnoticed until (possibly weeks later) a gateway is restarted, for whatever reason, at which point the iSCSI service goes offline.

A simple way to check the configuration is to run gwcli; it will error out when the configuration is invalid. But it would be nice to have a script that, given gateway.conf, pinpoints any issues. This isn't very hard to write, but we may not be the first team with this issue.

Is such a script available publically? I'm happy to contribute.
