sfcbrepos — Script to rebuild the Small-Footprint CIM Broker (sfcb) class repository

Synopsis

sfcbrepos [options]

Description

sfcbrepos rebuilds the sfcb class repository from the staging files. Rebuilding is done offline and the sfcb CIMOM must be restarted for changes to take effect.

Options

Supported command line options are:

-c schemadir

Path to obtain the CIM Schema classes. Default is /usr/share/mof/cim-current

-s stagingdir

Path to sfcb staging area containing class MOFs and registration files Default is /var/lib/sfcb/stage

-r registrationdir

Path to the sfcb registration directory, containing the root of the class repository directory tree.  Default is /var/lib/sfcb/registration

-f

Force option. Without this option you will be prompted to confirm creating a  new class repository (and delete the old one). Setting this option will rebuild the new sfcb repository without prompting.

-i

Do not migrate instances from previous repository

-b backendopts

Set special backend options for sfcbmof.  Valid options are: P32 - compile  for PowerPC target; Q - skip all string qualifiers in output file; q - skip  selected qualifiers (ArrayType, Deprecated, Description, MappingString, PUnit, UmlPackagePath, Units,  Version, ValueMap, and Values) in output file.  Note: eliminating qualifiers will often significantly reduce the size of the class repository.

-X platform

Alias of -b

-t format

The format for the class repository. sf for reduced-size repositories read by  ClassProviderSf. std for standard repositories read by either ClassProviderSf or ClassProviderGz. Default is auto, which will auto-detect based on the contents of the  providerRegister file.

-h

Display usage information and exit.

/var/lib/sfcb/registration/repository

Contain class repository directory for all supported CIM namespaces.

/var/lib/sfcb/registration/repository.previous
