Is it possible to pipe the output to a file? The only bad thing is that the log data won't show up in the job results and you'd have a log file on each target host.
Technically I suppose redirecting to a file is possible...
The package in question has multiple items, and having to go to another place for the extcmd status in addition to the job status isn't very attractive. The goal is really to have the output appear in the job run log with the newlines.
