I have set up a system with a new installation of opendnssec-1.4.0a1, which 
I built from sources on a 64 bit Suse Linux Enterprise System 11 with 
Service Pack 2.
I added one zone. In the system log I see that this zone is processed and I 
find the signed zone file.
As this is the first time that this zone is processed, new keys are 
generated. One of the KSK keys is in the dssub state.
According to the system log the ods-enforcerd executes the 
DelegationSignerSubmitCommand every hour, since the creation of the key. The 
name of this command is correct. It is the name of a shell script. However, 
it looks as if this script is never started. One of the first things that 
this script does is the creation of a file in the /tmp directory. Even this 
file is not found.

Running the script from the command line creates this temporary file without 

On another system I have opendnssec-1.3 running for a few months, which had 
no problems to use the same script.

Is there a known problem with the execution of the 
If not, how can I diagnose the failure to startup this script?
