Yeah, I also checked, and already updated the UG. So far I did not send
it to the web-dude, but "soon", then it is also on docs.linbit.com. Till

Hm, don't know if it is undocumented, guess not, usually the systemd
documentation is pretty good.

Anyways, this will change a bit in the future. I don't like that people
have to copy the whole ExecStart line. What if we then change default

linstor-statellite will also  understand a "LS_KEEP_RES" (or similar)
environment variable, then the whole thing becomes:

I like that a lot more.
