pw viewhistory

The pw viewhistory command displays changes made to a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server installation. These changes are recorded in the history file. The history file contains a log of patches and hotfixes applied.


The history file contains a log of only those hotfixes and patches applied through an installation package. If you upgrade a remote agent to a newer version, the history file will not contain a log of this upgrade.

The syntax for this command is as follows:

pw viewhistory [-s <startDate> -e <endDate>]


Run the following command to view history file entries within the time range specified. Enter the start and end dates in the mm/dd/yyyy format.

pw viewhistory -s 02/01/2014 -e 03/01/2014
