Most everyone's gone for the weekend, so you might not get a detailed response until Monday. In the meantime, if you want to check out the documentation, see "PackageBoot" starting on pg. 22 of the following document:
HTH - Have a good weekend!
I tried simply writing a command script, and that is not running either. it seems like packageboot is completely ignoring post execution commands. not sure how to troubleshoot this.
Sometimes the result codes from the <execution> section can impact the execution of the <postinstallation>section.
Try setting the failureaction to 'continue' in the <execution> section which should cause <postexecution> to run unconditionally.
If that happens, that would indicate an issue with the successcode attribute in the <execution> element.
If it continues to fail, that would indicate an issue with the actual <postexecution><program> elements.
