Nomad Service Does Not Restart

Below are the details related to nomad.
Part of a cluster, one of the client nodes with GPU is having this issue
Nomad v1.2.3 (a79efc8422082c4790046c3f5ad92c542592a54f)
Running on - Linux taitprod 5.4.0-135-generic #152~18.04.2-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 29 08:23:49 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It was running fine, but needed to restart node service due to a change in client.hcl. On service restart kept getting the error below.

Any ideas besides reinstall nomad?

sudo systemctl status nomad.service

Hello! It looks like the problem is in the configuration file (error parsing) – any way you can share the rest of the error and the change in the config file?

Thank you for your post. I figured that last night and it was with the image_delay value i had set. Looks like it understand hours, but I had days specified as the value. This fixed the issue.
