Helping Us Help You - TCR Bitesize Edition - Parameter not recognised

I'm back with another little TCR snippet for you. We're going to look at an issue where you might see the error "Parameter XXXX not recognised" when you try to run a TCR report. Specifically you'lll get this error if you try to run the report from the command line, but it will work in the TCR GUI.
Essentially this is a problem with the way the command is being run. While within the TCR GUI you need to use the hostname (e.g server1) as the input parameter for "Selected Resouce", you instead have to use the specific managed system name (eg. Primary:server1:NT) for this parameter when running from the command line. It's not something that's particularly well documented, hence this little blog post. It's not something we see a massive amount of PMRs complaining about as most folks just use the TCR GUI for everything, but in case there's ever an occasion where you can't use the GUI, keep this in mind!
