The $SERVICEOUTPUT$ variable when passed via the command line to either printf or perl generates an error on the command line which prevents it from running the notification email.
The question is "how to properly escape this variable" so that it doesn't generate an error on the command line.
Can you tell us exactly what this error says? Cut/paste here if you can.
Are you just running the notification commands in misccommands.cfg as-is from command line? Edited Fri Jan 06 2006, 12:40AM ]
Also a sample of the plug-in output would help.
