When loading the Change file as "base configuration" to modify the file afterwards, the error message "SGE1161: The type of the configuration file is not valid" appears. Is it possible to modify a change file after it was created?


It is not possible to use a configuration file of the type "change" as base configuration. Also, modifying a change file or loading it as base configuration file to modify it afterwards is not possible.

Note about the "Change" file type with the base configuration file:

If you click [Save] you are prompted to confirm that you want to replace the existing base configuration file. If you do so, by clicking [Yes], all the changes will be written to the existing base configuration file. Here we recommend that you create a new base configuration file, so that you can retain your original base configuration file.
