when you need to collect inventory on your client machines,you use this command.

niminv -o invcmp -a targets=NIMCLIENT -a base=master
-a location=/tmp/inventory

Comparison of master to NIMCLIENT saved to /tmp/inventory/comparison.master.NIMCLIENT .160506100551.

Return Status = SUCCESS

cat /tmp/inventory/comparison.master.NIMCLIENT .160506100551

base = comparison base = master
1 = NIMCLIENT
‘-‘ = name not in system or resource
same = name at same level in system or resource

The other way,Maybe you need to compare your inventory on your a lot of machines.

niminv -o invcmp -a targets=NIMCLIENT1,NIMCLIENT2 -a base=lpp_aix72_TL0_SP0_Base -a location=/tmp/packets

Comparison of lpp_aix72_TL0_SP0_Base to NIMCLIENT1,NIMCLIENT2  saved to /tmp/packets/comparison.lpp_aix72_TL0_SP0_Base.NIMCLIENT1:NIMCLIENT2.160506100515.

Return Status = SUCCESS

cat /tmp/packets/comparison.lpp_aix72_TL0_SP0_Base.NIMCLIENT1:NIMCLIENT2.160506100515

# name base 1 2
