exit codes > 0 returned by the generator are treated as errors and
systemd will log about this when the generator is run. You'll get an
error message like this in the journal:

Mai 09 12:41:46 pluto systemd[1]: Reloading.
Mai 09 12:41:47 pluto systemd[5481]:
/lib/systemd/system-generators/test failed with exit status 1.

Can you be more specific about you are trying to do?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
