Amfpm Tool Returns Zero Exit Code On Failure To Start Passive Monitoring

(Doc ID 1528416.1)

Oracle Communications OpenSAFfire - Version 6.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The amfpm tool returns zero even when it fails to start passive monitoring.

If the call to saAmfPmStart() fails, amfpm outputs an error to stdout, but then it continues until it hits the bottom of the main() method where it returns zero. This causes problems when using amfpm within BASH scripts and checking the return status.


Ideally, when the saAmfPmStart call fails, amfpm should exit with EXIT_FAILURE, as it does elsewhere in the application.
