Remote Command Exit Code

A zero (0) exit code usually means that the remote command terminated successfully. Otherwise, the exit code will be the value of the exit code from the remote server. Note: If the remote server runs on UNIX and the exit on the server side is due to a signal, the exit code will be 128 + the value of the exit code from the remote server.
