We are using conserver on some RHEL7 servers, but they rarely need a
reconfig after we set them up.  I looked at the systemd unit file and
ExecReload is not defined, so reloads will probably fail.  While getting
them working, I think I just stopped and started the service.

Looking at the systemd.service man page, it looks like using signals is
frowned upon but still available.  Something like

ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID

should still work.  There's a possibility of using a console zap but I
think that would require some non-default configuration.

# console -M localhost -z reconfig unauthorized command
