Re: rsadmin documentation?

We're running IRS version  There are some examples of the rsadmin utility in the IRS Monitored Devices Configuration Guide, and the Installation and Configuration Guide.  There needs to be more detailed information about the various options, though.  When I tried to do a bulk import to set warranty information, it took several tries to make it work, and  then I had four devices for each one I tried to update.  I left it for a day, but it never merged them.  I had to delete and rediscover them.  I'm still not sure what information is required for it to work.


It seems like a very useful utility.  I just wish it was documented better.
