  2. Agree with Sharad Srivastava on this. Harihara Subramanian Please make sure that the tssh service command details are present on the right side of the table similar to the other commands. Please discuss with Sudhakara Katakara for details.



  3. What exactly does "tssh component initialize" and "tssh component update" do?

    1. Patrick Mischler, thanks for posting the query. I will consult with the SMEs and update the document or get back to you or both.

      1. Patrick Mischler, hope you had a chance to check the updated description for tssh component initialize and tssh component update commands.


  4. Harihara Subramanian, Thank you. Yes, it is now more clear what the commands can be used for.
