The depot objects and the smart group should be existing in the catalog before running this command. To include the depot object add NAME#(name of the depot object)" in the include file. To include a smart group add "GROUP#(complete path to the smart group)" in the include file. for instance an example of the contents in the include/exclude list file could be NAME#APSB-0611 GROUP#/Catalog/TestCatalog1/smartGroup1.
