    This document lists common error codes that are found in the SmAgentAPI.h.
    These error codes are used in webagent responses.




    The current list of availible error codes for the webagent and policy server are defined in the documentation.

    Agent API errors are not documented, but the symbolic meaning of the error code can be gleaned from the SDK SmAgentAPI.h:

    #define SM_AGENTAPI_TIMEOUT -2
    #define SM_AGENTAPI_FAILURE -1
    #define SM_AGENTAPI_YES 1
    #define SM_AGENTAPI_NO 2

    Error 13 is a UNIX error:

    13 EACCES
    Permission denied

    An attempt was made to access a file in a way forbid- den by the protection system.

    Documentation for these errors can be read (on Solaris) by running the command man -s 2 intro.

    The error 18 and error 20 are Admin server errors. The description of the error should display in the pop-up box when the error is encountered. Here is a list of all known Admin
