    An instruction here is wrong: Infrastructure Management Server tuning parameters -> LOCMaxHeap -> \pw\custom\conf\pnagent.conf. If you add that attribute to the pnagent.conf in the custom directory, TSIM will fail to start. You need to make that change in the pronet directory - \pw\pronet\conf\pnagent.conf
