Re: -668 syntax command cannot be executed.
the question here is, with which userid is the system command
There have been changes in behaviour regarding this question,
and to be honest in the "not-so-new" version of IDS that you
have in use ... I do not know, how it is behaving, i.e. with which
userid a system command is executed.
You can try to run a command like "id -a > /tmp/here_am_i"
via the system command. Then run the procedure and
afterwards look at the file "/tmp/here_am_i" and check it's
content - it should tell the userid at runtime of the command.
This should then help you to understand why you get the
error and also to understand what you have to do to avoid it.
