SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a UNIX-based computer, you use the remote shell (rsh) program to run some commands in a remote shell session.
  • The remote shell session runs against a remote shell server (rshd). The server is hosted in the Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) on a Windows Server 2003 R2-based computer.
  • You run the commands in the background.
  • You redirect the command output to a local file.
In this scenario, the local file contains no information.
