cimreparchive(8)cimreparchive(8)NAMEcimreparchive - create an archive copy of the CIM Server repository
The cimreparchive command creates an archive copy of the CIM Server
repository in the specified archive_file. The archive copy is assured
to contain a consistent repository state even if it is created while
the CIM Server is running.
The archive_file is created using the tar(1) command. To restore the
repository from the archive_file, stop the cimserver, move the active
repository files to a different location, use tar(2) to extract the
archived repository files, and restart the cimserver. (Note that the
repository location is printed when an archive file is created.)
cimreparchive recognizes the following options:
--help Displays the command help message.
--version Displays the CIM Server version number.
When an error occurs, an error message is written to the standard error
stream and a non-zero exit status value is returned. The following exit
status values are defined:
1 General error
2 Failed to initiate archive operation
3 Archive operation failed
