stagingcheck utility

The stagingcheck utility is discontinued.

Recommended action:

As an alternative, run the stagingprop utility with the transaction parameter set to one (the default value) and the batchsize parameter that is set to 0. If an error is encountered during the stagingprop transaction, then the entire process is rolled back without any changes to staging or production servers. If you prefer, run stagingprop with the transaction parameter set to 1 and the batchsize parameter that is set to 1. If an error is encountered, all changes up until the point of failure is updated into staging and production servers. Resolve the issue and then rerun the utility, which begins running at the point of failure.
