Please read the ctdbd.conf manual page. The "DESCRIPTION" section
describes the various locations where ctdb code looks for the
config, adapted to your compile.

The bottom line is: /etc/ctdb/ctdbd.conf is the new
standard location, /etc/sysconfig/ctdb still works
and should by the new paradigm only be used for
those variables used by the initscripts.
