Error description

  • From sync_receive reference page:
    
    =================================
    When sync_receive is invoked as a receipt handler, the following
    parameters are passed in automatically. You can use ?sclass,
    ?data, and ?actual on the command line.
    
    ?s/class storage-class
        Imports packets in the incoming bays associated with
    storage-class. If storage-class does not have incoming bays or
    you do not specify ?sclass, sync_receive imports packets from
    the storage bay for the default storage class. You can create
    and modify storage classes in the shipping.conf file on Linux
    and the UNIX system, or the MultiSite Control Panel on Windows.
    =================================
    
    The actual / designed behavior is
    =================================
    If storage-class does not have incoming bays, sync_receive
    imports packets from the storage bay for the default storage
    class.
    
    If you do not specify either -sclass or -data then, sync_receive
    scans incoming bays of all defined storage classes and imports
    all packets.
    
    To import packets for the default storage class only, specify
    '-sclass -default'
    =================================
