You can specify login parameters, as shown in the following table, when you invoke the cmdbdriver program from the command line. These parameters are applicable to both UNIX and Microsoft Windows environments. When you execute the cmdbdriver program, the system displays the list of commands.

Commands that record your cmdbdriver commands

You can use the rec and srec commands of the cmdbdriver program to record cmdbdriver commands. The rec command starts recording the commands that you use at the prompt and srec stops recording commands.

When you type the rec command, you are prompted for the name of the file in which to store these commands. After you record the commands in a file, you can execute it at the cmdbdriver prompt by using the execute command and specifying the file name.

cmdbdriver and scripts

As an alternative to using the command line, you can use a script file that contains the cmdbdriver commands and execute it at the cmdbdriver prompt. You can create this script file using any text editor, such as Notepad.


To execute the commands stored in a file, either use the inline parameters (see Running cmdbdriver from the command line) or copy and paste the commands at the cmdbdriver prompt.
