Flume did not save the configuration to filename but to default file set in flume-conf.xml:
I connect flume master by "./flume shell -c localhost:35873"
Then "exec save '/home/flumeUser/flume/current.flume' " The result show "Command succeeded".
But the configuration is not loaded to /home/flumeUser/flume/current.flume, but to default file name /home/flumeUser/conf/current.flume.
Could you exlaination why this happened? Thank you.
Here is the information from flumemaster.out:

This default file is set by flume-conf.xml:

reloaded at startup.
