hi there,

I spend hours seeking for a solution to my problem... or at least a
cause for its occurrence :|

I wanted to set up a policy enabling remote management on certain
clients. Therefore I have to enable XDMCP. Novell was that kind and
supplied a script (/opt/novell/zenworks/bin/novell-rm-fixrl.sh) for
exactly that issue. In my case it takes the following parameters:
-dm kdm -cf /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc -r enable

it does work quite fine:
pluto:/../bin # ./novell-rm-fixrl.sh -dm kdm -cf
/etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc -r enable
Shutting down service kdm
Starting service kdm

unfortunately it doesn't work that fine when being executed as a binary
policy or script. The options you can configure in the 'new policy'
dialog are pretty straight forward and leave hardly any space for
screwing up yet it doesn't work :)

It always reports the following error:

The policy enable_xdmcp was enforced and the program launched did not
complete the execution.

there's no debug information in
/var/opt/novell/log/zenworks/zmd-messages I could use. Maybe another
place I don't know of?

Simple scripts like
echo 'blabla' >>/tmp/messages
work *confused*.

Any suggestions? Oh and by the way... how do you determine when the next
policy update call is being made? Issue a 'rug sch' and look for
maintenance? I set execution to "relative to refresh".. that should
trigger policy updates every maintenance interval right?

kind regards
