I'm trying to establish a shell instance in my script but it's spitting out ANS1036S errors (The option 'option' or the value supplied for it is not valid. It was found in options file 'file-name' at line number: number) for every single line starting with DEVCONFIG in the dsm.opt file. Even running straight from cmd fails with the same issue:

"C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsmadmc.exe" -id=<userid> -pa=<password> -optfile="E:\TSM\TSM01\dsmscript.opt"

This is the content of the dsm file I copied (dsmscript.opt) for testing (I removed tabs and white spaces):

COMMMethod TCPIP
TCPPort 1500
DEVCONFIG devconf.dat
VOLUMEHISTORY volhist.dat
TCPADMINPort 1500

What gives?

The content of what you pasted on the screen are all options valid in dsmserv.opt, very few of these are valid for dsm.opt.

dsmserv.opt -> option file used by the server when starting
dsm.opt (or other .opt) -> option file used by the clients (dsm.exe, dsmc.exe and dsmadmc.exe)
