Symptoms

Confusing results for some 'tmsh ramcache' commands.

Impact

Some commands do not execute as expected, or there is no indication that the command executed, but did nothing.

Conditions

This occurs in either of the following scenarios: -- There is more than one profile name when issuing a command. -- A profile name is not valid.

Workaround

Use tab completion when entering a profile name, and never try to enter more than one profile name in a RAM cache command.

Fix Information

The use of multiple profile names in a RAM cache command will now give an error message and do nothing. An invalid profile name will return an error, and again, do nothing.
