help with rdist utility

Does anyone know of any known bugs/issues with the RDIST utility on HP unix?
I am trying to set up replication between two servers. All seems to work okay to start with, but the rdist program always terminates with a value of 1 - i.e. signifying an error. However - no error message or even warning is generated. Does anyone have any idea why this might be?

any comments / suggestions greatly appreciated.
