repupgrade - Man Page

enables upgrading to a newer version of the CIM schema by recreating schema extensions from an old repository in a new repository that has been initialized with the new version of the schema. It also sets the SystemName key property in Filter, Handler instances to empty since SystemName is generated dynamically from the current system name. Corresponding subscriptions are also modified with the modified filter and handler references.


repupgrade -o oldrepositorypath -n newrepositorypath

repupgrade -h | --help

repupgrade -v | --version


The utility will recreate schema extensions from an older repository in a new repository. New namespaces, class extensions, qualifier extensions and instances in the old repository will be created in the new repository.

If an error occurs during the upgrade an error message is displayed and the upgrade is aborted. If an error occurs during the creation of a schema element, the CIM/XML request for creating the schema element is logged.
