Error description

  • In the output returned by running the collector command with
    -help, there is an AidInventory parameter listed, which does not
    exist.
    
    The command is:
    c:\tmp>c:\ibm\websphere60\appserver\profiles\AppSrv01\bin\collec
    tor -help
    
    The parameters seen are: Inventory, JarOutName, Compression,
    CaseSensitive, AutoCollect, ManifestFile, mfVersion,
    mfMainClass, LogFile, PropertyFile, ScratchFile, Version, Debug,
    Help and Verbosity.
    
    The help display of the collector needs to be cleaned up to
    remove the mention of AidInventory. This is how it looks like
    currently:
    
    ****
    -Inventory  <file-spec>
            Where <file-spec> is a file specifying the data to
    collect.
            If the Collector is being executed as an executable jar
    then the default inventory file will be searched within the jar
    file with the name of "default.inventory". If being executed as
    a class file then the default is to prompt the user. An
    inventory file is required for operation. For help with the
    inventory file, use the -AidInventory option.
    ****

    The collector tool's help information incorrectly mentions an
    option called -AidInventory that is nonfunctional. The help
    display of the collector needs to be cleaned up to remove the
    mention of AidInventory. This is how it looks like
    currently:
    
    ****
    -Inventory  <file-spec>
    Where <file-spec> is a file specifying the data to
    collect.
    If the Collector is being executed as an executable jar
    then the default inventory file will be searched within the jar
    file with the name of "default.inventory". If being executed as
    a class file then the default is to prompt the user. An
    inventory file is required for operation. For help with the
    inventory file, use the -AidInventory option.
    ****
    

Problem conclusion

  • The -AidInventory comment has been removed and the collector's
    help should display the following under -Inventory:
    
    ****
    -Inventory  <file-spec>
    Where <file-spec> is a file specifying the data to
    collect.  If the Collector is being executed as an executable
    jar then the default inventory file will be searched within the
    jar file with the name of "default.inventory". If being
    executed as a class file then the default is to prompt the
    user. An inventory file is required for operation.

    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpacks 6.1.0.21 and 6.0.2.33.  Please refer to the
