1. While executing an FTP command in a Shell script, we get following error : TM_6056 Error executing shell command [FILE_TRANSFER.sh]. Return code is [256].2. From experience we know that this is due to FTP failure. Resolution is to first resolve the FTP error & then re-start the workflow/server.3. I want to know what is the method of getting more details & resolution for such "Return Codes" (256 or any other) ?

The error codes are in Hex .You have to convert it in Decimal to have the actual error code in Unix.
Googling around you would find the error code-desc pairs on some pages.
This error particularly is "Not a super user" ,as far as my memory doesn't fail me.
