Due to the pub/sub nature of the interaction from the Distribution Server and the Process Server, the Distribution server publishes messages that are consumed by the process servers so things can go wrong there, that the Distribution Server does not know about. IBM does not have plans to change this design within the next two years.
It does generate a lot of messages, information, warnings, and errors as appropriate. The issue is that, when scanning for the “Distribution Done” message to confirm completion, there’s nothing to note that anything unusual has happened.
A person scanning the results can always rummage through the earlier messages to determine whether it completed successfully, but, to minimize the risk of human error, it should contain something in the completion message to indicate success or failure, not just completion. And for automated scanning, a more "complete" completion message would indicate whether human intervention is needed.
Does the Business Rules Process Server not produce an alert/etc. for the issue it encounters?
