Importing reconciliation definitions
You import reconciliation definitions by using the BMC Remedy Data Import CLI.
Before using the CLI on UNIX for the first time, you must add an entry to your library path. The CLI also has several other options not described in the following procedure, some of which might be necessary depending on your AR System server environment. For more information about these topics, see Enabling the Data Import utility.
To import reconciliation definitions
- Open a command prompt.
- If using Microsoft Windows, change to the directory where BMC Data Import tools are installed.
The default directory is <BMCinstall>\AR System\<serverName> \dataimporttool.
- Enter the command:
dataimport.bat -x <serverName> -u <userName> -p <password> -a <port> -o <importFile> -l <logFile> -e 179 -D 4
For <importFile>, specify the full path to the file containing the exported definitions from the procedure Exporting reconciliation definitions.
Specifying a log file is optional, but recommended in case there are any errors with the import. If you are not using portmapper, you can specify the port for the server with the optional
-e 179 option enables you to verify whether a definition you are importing already exists. This check is performed based on the globally unique identifier (GUID) values.
-D4 option updates an entry if a match is found. If no match is found, a new entry is created. For more information about the various options for the dataimport.bat utility, see
in the AR System online documentation.
