Norman,

Thank for the reply but I wasn't quite clear enough.
The context of this is within a recovery script, so I'm concerned that I
can get the return value of the audisp-remote within the script to
decide if the recovery was successful or if it failed.

I don't think that was clear above; my apologies since the conversation
I referenced was > 1 year old.
