Software assistant swa get does not download patches


I am having some issues setting up and using swa report and swa get. When I use

"swa report -a SEC -a CRIT -x hp_id username -x hp_pw pword -x proxy=http://proxservername:8080"

the report is generated, etc as expected.

However when I execute

"swa get -t /var/spool/sw/ -x allow_existing_depot=true -x hp_id username -x hp_pw pword -x proxy=http://proxservername:8080"

the command executes downloads (allegedly) and processes the 116 updates to the SDUX and completes successfully however when I check the /var/opt/swa/cache there are no files and also when I check the SDUX via "swlist -d @ /var/spool/sw/" it does not show any of the patches required, etc.

There are no errors, etc and even when I run the get command with option -x verbosity=D I see no reason for this failing to download the "download.contents" file shows the required files but just no files seem to download.

Any ideas would be great.

I have also tried simple swa get commands such as "swa get -t /var/spool/swa_depot", etc and see the same results.

Thanks in advance
