    The following prompt appears:

    *********************************************************************************
    Please enter the required command line arguments as below
    pw cloudTopologyIntegration conf –a CLM [-pms <CLM Platform Manager Protocol>]
    -pmh <CLM Platform Manager host> [-pmt <CLM Platform Manager Port>]
    -pmu <CLM Platform Manager User Name> -pmp <CLM Platform Manager Password>
    [-bcs <BPPM Central Protocol>] [-bch <BPPM Central Host>] [-bct <BPPM Central Port>]
    where
    <CLM Platform Manager Protocol> is the CLM Platform Manager protocol (default http, if not specified)
    <CLM Platform Manager host> is the CLM Platform Manager host
    <CLM Platform Manager Port> is the CLM Platform Manager Port (default 80, if not specified)
