I would like to hear your opinions about shell and nimsh

I install the nim master on a server and and client nim on others servers. I backup this clients with the NIM master.

When Im trying to install the clients with the option nimsh (communication protocol) send me an error

0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":
   0042-006 m_mkbosi: (From_Master) connect Error 0

rshd: 0826-813 Permission is denied

Then I have to do with shell and everthing its fine.

My question its about the difference about shell and nimsh. strengths and weakness about both communication protocol.

thanks for your comments

in NIM shell protocol is used to pull the data/image from nim master and nimsh protocol is used to push the data/image from nim master.

In your case,
0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":
   0042-006 m_mkbosi: (From_Master) connect Error 0

rshd: 0826-813 Permission is denied

while you are adding a nim client it will add entry of nim master in .rshosts in client.

For some security purpose we used to remove /.rhosts. So did you checked /.rhosts entry in nim client.
