Needed to use QMGTOOLS for a *http ticket. Not often used this tool before - for reasons.
Now ran into some issues which should be addressed ASAP:
* for HTTP issues, the tool runs serveral data collectionis. For example ANZDFTPWD (not sure why this is needed). This needs long time on a system with 30.000+ user profiles and is not necessary in my opinion
* the new IBM restrictions for data transfer do only allow a transfer ID / password - the QMGTOOL does not notify about this and first starts data collection, and after some 30 mins the job finishes without any further notice about not being able to send data. Even DSPJOBLOG does not show this
* when working with a ticket, the support officer sends you links about using the QMGTOOL which does contain some links about usage who also contain more links about usage and installation - which do contain outdated information
This creates more efforts to find out about how to send data to IBM on a ticket than the problem itself.
