Forgot to add that idg01 is in my mcell.dir listing as well.
And, in addition...I now know that the server is aware of the cell on the other box, as i can msend correctly to it...but propagate is still not working :/ Hrmph...
Did you restart the cell to load the definition of idg01? Did you recompile the kb and restart?
BTW The cell only uses the information in its mcell.dir. The cell does not contact the portal or ias.
Yeah...didn't need to restart for it to even pick up the contents of mcell.dir, so that was nice.
Oddly enough, it just didn't like me putting the propagate rule into an existing mrl file. Pulling it out and placing it in it's own separate mrl file resolved this. I wouldn't have expected that to be needed, but it shows my green colors
