When the cell runs as a daemon or a service, it has no standard output or error stream. Tracing that is configured to go to
stderr is redirected to a file in this case. You can configure the path for that file in mcell.conf. The default is installationDirectory\pw\server\tmp\cellName\trace.
If the cell service setup fails, an error file, mcell.err, is generated. Additional service setup failures can be appended to the original file, resulting in a file content of multiple lines. Normally, each line corresponds to one failed service setup. This error file contains exit codes specific to BMC Impact Manager.
The following table lists the exit codes for cell.
