There is couple of situations, where qconf -ke[j] <host> return zero code, but execd is not shutdown. Displayed message clearly suggests
it's a failure!

This is a problem when users rely on the exit state in their scripts.

I can confirm that in maintrunk this problem exists. I tried the following procedure below with an incorrect exit code.

>qconf -ke host123
failed sending shutdown notification to unknown execd host host123
>echo $?

This exit code should definitely not be 0, as this indicates a success when clearly an error occured.

   ------- Additional comments from mpospisil Mon Mar 2 09:48:17 -0700 2009 -------
In the qmaster code, there is no distinction between a failed attempt to kill an execd and a successful attempt. In both cases the status is
marked as STATUS_OK. This needs to be modified to give an error in the case where the attempt failed.
