Distributed Server Administration program

In this topic:

The data in many distributed fields is system-generated (DSO sets their values). You cannot manually change the values of such fields in a request. The ardist program, however, enables you to overwrite the values in these distributed fields:

  • From Form
  • From Mapping
  • From Pool
  • From Server
  • Master Flag

Warning

The ardist program simply edits field values in a specified request. It does not distribute data between forms and should not be considered a command-line version of DSO.



The following table lists the ardist command-line arguments.

Note

If you use corresponding uppercase and lowercase arguments in the same command line, such as*-m 1 -M*, the field value is set to NULL.
