Goldengate On AS400 Change Installation Library Failed

(Doc ID 2381731.1)

Last updated on APRIL 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 12.1.2.1.10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

received a patch and the patch was applied in a different library and it worked fine.
Since the existing library is no longer required they have moved and deleted the old installation.
right now they want to change the new installation library to the old library name and trying to point the softlinks to the new library which is causing some issues.

the error is :

ggos400install -a *SYSBASE -n 1 -f goldengate -l goldengate

is the error message.
The options -a, -n, and -f must be used with either the -c or -l options.      

So they need a correct syntax to forcefully link the goldengate library.
