I believe you're saying that it is kept in the database - it is, but
frontends can't run without the db so there's no difference. You could
try to modify your boot params so that the frontend would try to start a
few times, and if failed, halt the machine... 'Though I'm not sure if
the frontend crashes when it can't connect to the db or does it just
assume that it's not configured yet...
