Issue






Symptoms
It seems that when we created a check to inspect file contents of a set of file within some

certain directories defined by wild-card character, the check always
returned as "Unknown".

For example, we'd like to inspect every Xresources file contents locating
under /usr/dt/config/*/ directory. The created check always yields
"Unkonwn" result. It's somewhat weird because we could create similar
checks evaluating the permission instead of file contents.

Furthermore, there exists one check in AIX predefined standard to handle
this kind of task labelled "Is the Dtlogin*greeting.labelString set to
warning string?". The check is, of course, a complex check that we couldn't
inspect the logic being used and also the result for this check is always
"Unknown".
