I think you need to review your threshold for sending every query
you have to the help list. There is a perfectly good manual that
you can study, and the frequency of your messages tells me that
you are not giving these matters any thought yourself, just dumping
every little obstacle onto the list.

You declare that editfiles does not work on AIX but that is silly.
The problems you describe do not make sense. I do not believe that
you have correctly analyzed the situation. I suspect that the
reason you are not seeing an update is due to a non-expired lock,
nothing to do with editfiles. Also, why are you putting variable
definitions in cfagent.conf and editfiles stanzas into update.conf
(which gets run before cfagent.conf) ?

Please try to give the online help at the attention it
